Westward Ho! Ho! Ho! night is our family celebration just before Christmas. We hold this one every year to kick off the festive season with some Westward Ho! spirit and style. It is held on the village green, watch this year for the introduction of the "Sandy Santa Run" alongside our established family orientated entertainment, craft fair, live music, carols with the Churches and a visit from the big man himself!

So, what going on?:-

12.00-13.00 - SANDY SANTA 5k RUN - Work off the Christmas turkey before it's even gone on! Join us for the FIRST Westward Ho! Sandy Santa Fun Run. Beginning at the slipway and running along the beach then back to the village green where you will finish by the main stage. As it's Christmas it would be rude not to dress as Father Christmas!
Entrance fee £10. ALL competitors get a unique "Sandy Santa" T-Shirt, Dartington Crystal engraved glass bowls for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places plus you go down in Westward Ho! History!

13.00-14.00 - MUSICAL ACT - Lets get this party started!

13.00-19.00 CHRISTMAS CRAFT FAIR- Details soon

14.00-16.30 KIDS CORNER - A special area for the younger Christmas lovers. We will have free lantern making workshops (flickering battery powered candle £2 or bring your own light but no open flames). All proceeds of the light sales help finance this event.
Story time with Fran.

14.15-15.15 - MUSICAL ACT - Details to follow

15.15-15.30 WESTWARD HO! CHRISTMAS CONGA-It has been resurrected from Westward Ho! history, used last year...A Westward Ho! tradition...The Christmas Conga!

15.30-16.30 - MUSICAL ACT - Details to follow

16.30 CHRISTMAS LANTERN PARADE-You will have had the day to build them, now lets show them off in a wonderful Lantern parade around the village. We will be going on a Santa hunt with lanterns in hand.

16.30-17.00 SANTA-What Christmas event would be complete without the big man himself? Father Christmas will be taking some time from his busy schedule to visit Westward Ho! Ho! Night and hiding in the village...Hopefully our lantern parade will end up finding him!

17.15-18.00 THE BIG SING-Join Westward Ho! Baptist Church and Holy Trinity Church choirs singing Christmas Carols with Bideford Brass Band on the sea front. What a perfect end to an amazing day/night in the village and what a way to start Christmas.
