Christmas in Crewe

What's on in Crewe at Christmas guide (2021)

Crewe was still open for business in Christmas 2021 with lots going on! Here are some of the highlights below:

Lumen Lite (26 November - 12 December)

This self-guided illuminated arts trail took place over sixteen evenings on the theme of 'Discovery'. Visitors met Moon Folk, discovered giant astronauts, and stumbled across a TARDIS too.

To see more of the illuminated artworks and installations, visit our Lumen Lite 2021 webpage.

Crewe Christmas Saturdays (27th November, 4th, 11th & 18th December)

A programme of FREE festive entertainment took place throughout the town centre on the lead up to Christmas, showcasing walkabout characters, live performers, music, craft workshops and more!

Winter fairies, festive flowerpot men, Dodgy Boys street dealers and many more appeared to entertain the people of Crewe. There was also live music and family-friendly activities to enjoy.

The Crewe Christmas Saturdays went down a storm (literally, thanks to Storm Arwen and Storm Barra!) But the unfavourable weather conditions didn't stop the fun and the performers spread lots of Christmas cheer.
