Widcombe Christmas Lights Switch-on and Bonbon Cabaret

Thursday 1st December - 6.15pm

Widcombe Switch on

This year none other than the Queen herself will be here in Widcombe to "switch on" of the Widcombe Christmas tree lights along the street!

Come along and meet outside the White Hart for 6.15pm to welcome Her Maj, who will then lead the way around some of Widcombe's wonderful independent shops which are staying open an extra hour or two for late shopping.

Why not stop for a glass of cheer in one of the hostelries on the way? And if you are attending the Bonbon Cabaret (see below), remember to wear red and be creative for a chance to win a prize...


Thurs 1st Dec 2016 - doors 7.30pm for 8.00pm show at Widcombe Social Club

Bonbon & Chums Christmas Cabaret Special

After a three year sabbatical the fabled Bonbon Cabaret is back, featuring a scintillating array of talent in a variety show format at Bath Comedy's newest cool venue, the recently reopened Widcombe Social Club!

Monsieur Ralph Le Bonbon will introduce a splendiferous line-up of quality acts including character comedy and music plus, of course, the ineffable Widcombe Players; and no Bonbon Cabaret would be complete without the unmissable pickled egg raffle!

Starring Marty Skiver, character comic Emma Sidi, comedy songwriter Tamar Broadbent and cabaret star Tina T’urner Tea Lady!

Come and experience the continually improving wonderful space which is Widcombe Social Club, with its comfy seats, air conditioning, new acoustics, posh toilets, downstairs lounge/bar and gorgeous staff!

NB: Look out for the Widcombe Christmas Tree Lights switch-on before this show - rumour has it that the Queen herself is coming to do the honours this year!

Wear red and win a prize for the best hat/jumper/creation...
