Woodbridge Christmas Regatta

This Christmas, celebrate the beginning of the festive season in style as the community groups of Woodbridge unite to welcome Father Christmas to town with a Christmas market and live music.

Setting off at approx. 12.30pm and working their way down the River Deben from The Woodbridge Boat Yard, the aforementioned will lead a parade to be followed by the public, ending at Whisstocks Place / Tide Mill Way.

On arrival participants will be meet by Santa in his Sleigh, supported by his helpers from the Deben Rotary Club, and live festive music curated by The Spirit Of Woodbridge.

The event will also see local businesses and charities form a mini Christmas Market, open from 11am – 4pm, and supported by the surrounding shops and restaurants.

Additionally, The Longshed, Woodbridge Art Club, The Tide Mill and The Woodbridge Museum will be open to visit and will be hosting an exciting array of exhibitions and activities.
