The Leiston Events Group is a non-profit volunteer-run group which aims specifically to put on some of Leiston’s biggest free events, such as Leiston’s Big Weekend in the Summer and Leiston’s Winter Christmas Event.
We work closely with local businesses and other organisations to get the whole town involved in our events, and we do our best to make sure every event is different and memorable.
Every event we run has a number of different fun entertainers and crafty stalls and we usually have a few family favourites like a fun fair. Local clubs and groups are always invited to demonstrate what they do too.
Leiston businesses are encouraged to participate in some way, with window display competitions, smaller events, or by becoming stallholders. If you want to get involved, please contact us!
We’re always on the lookout for new event helpers and committee members to help us run the events. If you’re keen to help, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every year we put on an amazing Christmas spectacle in the streets of Leiston. The Christmas events take over the High Street, Main Road, Sizewell Road and meet the festivities held at the Long Shop Museum.
This includes Christmas Caroling on Christmas Eve within the Old Post Square, why not join in the festive fun and get into the Christmas Spirit.
