Christmas in Camberley started in style on Saturday 20th November, with The Square hosting children’s character Peppa Pig for meet and greet sessions, the grand opening of Santa’s Post Office and a fabulous Christmas craft market in the centre.
Families flocked to The Square to enjoy festive fun throughout the day ahead of the town lights being switched on at 4.45pm
Hundreds of children enjoyed meeting Peppa and having a photo taken followed by a visit to Santa’s Post Office to prepare and send Christmas wish lists to Santa via the magical post box.

Rhoda Joseph, Centre Manager said Rhoda Joseph, Centre Manager said; “Peppa Pig’s visit was a real treat, and it was great to see so many children excited to meet her.
Christmas felt like it had really arrived with the opening of Santa’s Post Office and a visit from Santa to Camberley to switch on the lights in the town centre with the Mayoress.
The light switch on generated much excitement and it was magical to see The Square Santa’s Post Office can be found in Obelisk Way between Boots and Rock Box.
