What’s On - Many and varied Christmas events in December in addition to local walks (4th, 9th, 11th, 18th), films (including seasonal ones), talks, performance and more. The Switch-On of the Reydon Christmas lights takes place on 7th, with the annual Winter Fayre at Halesworth on 8th. Try Handbell Ringing at Halesworth, followed by joining the audience for a Christmas Lunchtime Recital at the church (11th). There's a Carols and Pints event to enjoy at Holton (14th) and A Christmas Carol performance at Halesworth (22th). If taking part in the Christmas Day swim at Southwold you must register in advance, or just come along to cheer!
