Kew’s annual community Christmas event, Kew Sparkle, will get the festive season well and truly underway on Friday 1 December 2017 in Kew Village from 5-8pm. This year Kew Sparkle is celebrating TEN years of festive fun and supporting local charities.
Choirs from Kew primary schools and local singer, Shelle Luscombe, will be setting the musical scene with some festive Christmas carols. The arrival of Father Christmas and Santa’s Grotto along with vintage carousels and old-fashioned game stalls will provide entertainment for the younger visitors, whilst over 30 stalls will provide a Christmas shopping opportunity for adults. Food and mulled wine will be aplenty.
Profits raised are being donated to another local Kew Charity this year – the Kew Youth Club. Kew Youth Club (a charity registered not for profit organization, affiliated to London Youth) runs every Friday night in term time from 7pm to 9pm, at the Barn Church, Atwood Avenue. It’s a great club for young people in years, 7,8 and 9 that offers a chance to chat, play, listen to music, meet up with old friends and make new ones. Kew Sparkle is pleased to be supporting such a worthwhile cause.
In 2016, Kew Sparkle raised just over £3000 for the Kew Neighbourhood Association (KNA).
