Warming Up For Christmas- Thatcham 2020

Although Thatcham are not able to celebrate ‘Warming up for Christmas" with their well-attended gatherings over the festive period. The Town Council supported by key Thatcham community groups are instead planning a series of four festive installations spread throughout Thatcham. Families are  encouraged to make their own stars, which can then be displayed on a  ‘Big Star Installation’ closest to them.
