Christmas Extravaganza 2021

Disley Parish Council is delighted to announce the return of its Christmas Extravaganza following last year’s Covid-enforced cancellation. This year’s event is booked for Friday 3rd December and has all the old favourites as well as few new twists.

Things start on the Ram Green at 6.00pm with festive music from Cheshire’s Silk FM.

Disley Girl Guiding will be doing free face painting and the roasted chestnut seller will keep everyone warm until the countdown to the Christmas tree lights switch-on at 7.00pm.

Santa will be in his grotto to say “hello” but sadly, due to Covid, he won’t be able to give out gifts on the night.  Everyone will just have to wait until Christmas Day!

Live music on the stage from will from Disley Primary School Choir and the Disley Community Choir.  Then there will be a demonstration from the Disley Line Dancers before a bit of community carol singing.

The Extravaganza will stretch all the way down Market Street with many shops, opening for late night shopping and offering festive treats.  The village’s super-size Christmas presents will be back along with the Selfie Wall at the Community Centre.

The evening’s finale will be a spectacular firework display to light up the sky.

Disley & Newtown Christmas 2020

Christmas 2020 was a bit different given the Coronavirus situation.  However, just because we couldn’t have a big village get-together for the annual Christmas Extravaganza, it didn’t mean that Disley Parish Council did not mark the festive season in style.

The Disley Christmas Selfie/Photo Wall

Many thanks to everyone who has sent in photos from the Christmas Selfie/Photo wall at Disley Community Centre. We published a selection of these and thanks go to all parents for granting the Council permission to use the photos.  The Selfie Wall was a big hit (and so were the goody bags given to everyone taking part) and we are sure that it will be back in 2021.

Big Christmas Presents

The Parish Council gave some of the street furniture in the village a festive makeover by wrapping it up as big Christmas presents.  We hope they brought a bit of seasonal fun to the village.


Ram Green Nativity scene

Massive thanks go to Jackie and Mark Pattison and Lesley and Ken Fogg for creating a lovely Nativity scene on the Ram Green.  It was a wonderful addition to the seasonal installations around the village.

2019 Disley Parish Council Christmas Extravaganza

The 2019 event took place on Friday 6th December and despite a rainy afternoon setting up on the Ram Green, come the evening, it stayed (mainly) dry.

There were a few changes for 2019 with Cheshire’s Silk FM setting up a stage and providing festive music for the evening. The stage meant everyone could see and hear the fantastic performances from the Disley Community Choir, St. Mary’s Singers and the Disley Primary School Choir.

Santa pressed the plunger to turn on the Christmas tree lights and moved into his bigger Grotto to meet and greet all the children.  Free face painting was kindly undertaken by the Girl Guiding in Disley group.

This year, the Parish Council not only illuminated the Rams Head but also the Dandy Cock, where there were stalls and a kids disco.

The traditional firework finale was as spectacular as ever, and everyone seemed to have a thoroughly good time.

Disley Christmas Lights 2018

The Disley Christmas Lights Switch On has come a long way since its’ inception 15 years ago. Back then it was a cosy gathering to sing a few carols around the Christmas tree.

The 2018 event took place on Friday 7th December and included Canalside Radio playing Christmas music and fantastic street entertainers, “Bread and Butter,” spreading festive cheer. For the first time, there was a teacup merry-go-round for the little ones.

There was live music from three local choirs, interspersed with a bit of community carol singing before Father Christmas arrived on his super-sleigh to hand out a free Christmas present to all the good little boys and girls.

As is tradition, the grand finale was a spectacular Firework Display.

More shops than ever stayed open offering festive treats and late-night Christmas shopping and the Rams Head hosted a Christmas Market.
