Every year the Billericay Mayflower Rotary join together with other service clubs in the town to create a Christmas wonderland, closing off the High Street to traffic and offering a range of fun activities and shopping.

Round Table, and Billericay and Basildon Rotaries assist with the event that welcomes around 20,000 visitors, and raises thousands of pounds for a number of local, national and international causes.

There are a number of events (pipe band, flash mobs, circus acts etc.), live stage performances, children’s funfair, Donkey rides, a wide variety of food and drink, and plenty of opportunities to help support local charities. Another highlight is Santa’s Grotto, with a free gift for every child. And of course the vast majority of shops, pubs and restaurants will also be open.


For the full timetable and more details about the Billericay Christmas Market please visit the official website,

  • 11am - Market opens with Santa's parade up and down the High Street after which Santa proceeds to his free grotto, this year situated in the WI Hall, St Edith’s Lane, Billericay, CM12 9BU.
  • 5pm - Market closes


As with any public event, as much as possible is being done to minimise traffic and congestion as the High Street will be completely closed to traffic.

With this in mind, if you are travelling from outside Billericay, please consider using the train, buses or car-share.
