Every year, Faringdon town square is closed to traffic and is filled with market stalls, live music and food vendors. People from Faringdon and neighbouring villages descend on Faringdon to watch the towns Christmas lights & Christmas tree being turned on for the first time.
The Old Crown Coaching Inn is perfectly situated in the square, which allowed us to get involved with this years festivities. The Inn has had a total Christmas makeover this year. With over 6 beautifully decorated Christmas trees, each room elegantly decorated to spread the warmth Christmas brings.
What better way to join in with the town than to open up our beautiful Courtyard to market stalls. Our mobile bar, The Stag Shed, was here too, serving mulled wine, mulled cider and a range of other drinks. Not to mention, our snow machine was running at full speed adding an extra layer of Christmas to the day. It was great to see children roasting marshmallows and warming up by our fire pits too.
It was a splendid day, followed by a fully booked evening in the hotel and our restaurant, The Ballroom.
It was great to see the town bustling, everyone getting involved and supporting all the amazing businesses we have here in the town.
We love this town.
