Framlingham’s Christmas On The Hill event for 2021 will be on Friday 3rd December from 4.30pm-10.30pm.

We are so pleased with the music line up: Castleton Brass Band in Market Hill, and at the Castle: The Glass Thistles, TMHS Orchestra, FAYAPs IKARUS, and the acoustic trio Flaxen from 7.30pm. We have handed out 200 LED lights to make lanterns for a magical procession up to the Castle at 7pm. See the poster for a full list of what is happening, where and when – starting with late night shopping, a tree lighting up ceremony, Christmas carols, Nativity and storytelling.

Free access to the Castle for Fram residents from 2pm – make sure you get a wrist band in advance. Available from the Castle ticket kiosk (at weekends), the Town Council office, the Library, or at a workshop

We are so pleased with the music line up: Castleton Brass Band, The Glass Thistles, Thomas Mills High School, FAYAPs Ikarus, and the acoustic trio Flaxen.

We have enough LED lights to make 200 lanterns for the stunning procession up to the Castle. So look out for the workshop sessions, or make your own at home.

Lots of activities, refreshments, and of course the shops will be opening late for Xmas gifts.


For the “Christmas on the Hill” procession

Bring a clear plastic bottle, your imagination, and make a lantern to light your way during the lantern procession up to the Castle.

Workshops to make lanterns will be at the Castle, in the Library, at your local Guides or Brownie group. SRH Primary School will have free LEDs and leaflets for those who would like to make one at home.

See our poster outlining all the details.

Here is a DIY leaflet with all you need to know on how to make your lantern – using either a plastic bottle, or a jam jar.

Pick up your free LED lantern bulbs from the Town Council office on 10c Church Street (check the opening times!).
