Portchester Community Association organises the Christmas Lights Switch on event in the Portchester Precinct. It is held annually on the first Friday of December. 

The Precinct tree is funded through the Portchester Gala raffle, without the donations of prizes from local businesses there is no tree, so we thank those who have contributed prizes and bought tickets to make this event happen. 

This year we held a Christmas card competition and the winner got to switch on the Precinct Christmas lights. All cards entries will be gave out to members of our social groups and lunch clubs. Congratulations to our winners who did a great job at turning the lights on!!

We are always delighted to be joined by Santa, this year his elf came along to see all the children. Throughout the evening we also had a selection of choirs, schools and groups perform to Christmas songs. Thank you to everyone who took part and helped out on the night! 

We hope you all enjoyed the evening and come along again next year!
