Revellers are invited to dress up in their favourite festive gear to enjoy singing, dancing and merriment. Carol singing will start at 6pm with the Tilbury Brass Band, finishing with the Thurrock Youth Orchestra performance between 6.45pm and 7.15pm. Your MC for the night will be Chairman of the Thurrock Arts Council, John Scowen.
Jackie Doyle-Price MP said: “I am delighted to be turning on the very first Christmas Tree lights at High House Production Park. Watching the transformation and the emergence of a new creative industries cluster here in Purfleet is very exciting. That it is being done in partnership with the local community makes it more special”.
