Last year was (admittedly) a bit of a crush at the Stalbridge Christmas Celebrations...A victim of the popularity of the event...but this year we have arranged more than twice the indoor space available. The Main Hall, The Community Hall, The Youth Club room and the Scout Hut will all host part of the event. Not only this, but outside the hall our "Tented Alpine Village" will add to the atmosphere and space for the many families of Stalbridge to enjoy the event in more spacious surroundings. So come and join us from 3.30pm to 9.30pm this Friday, 2nd Dec for the Stalbridge Alpine Christmas Event and support the many charitable organisations and groups who have spent a lot of their own free time to make this a Very Special Event for Stalbridge. Come and join us!
