Ash Fantasia 2022
Each year Ash celebrates the start of the Christmas Season by holding a Christmas Market at the Ash Centre (Ash Fantasia 2022). This year it will be held 12 pm – 4:30 pm Saturday 26th of November, and there will be both inside and outside stalls including some small fairground attractions in the Ash Centre car park. The Centre will be full of local organisations, charities and businesses with lots of fun, games and present ideas. At 4:30 pm the Ash Vale Ensemble band will play Christmas carol music in front of the Christmas Tree in the village centre. Residents are invited to join in by singing along to the Christmas carols. The event culminates with the arrival of Santa who will be turning on the Christmas Lights throughout the Parish at 5 pm.
Ash Parish Councillor John Tonks said:
“This event is often very well attended and I am very pleased to be helping to organise this year’s event after 2020. If you have never visited the market at the Ash Centre, please give it a try this year as there are many good causes to support with some great items for sale. Also thank you to Bridges who provide the power for the Christmas Tree!”

The Ash Centre market is open from 12:00 pm until 4:30 pm and includes a mixture of both charity and local craft stalls. Entry to the Christmas market is free.
