Deck the halls, hang the stockings and get ready to rock around the Christmas tree – Christmas on John Street is back in 2022, transforming Singleton's Town Centre on Friday 9 December from 6 - 9pm.

A massive evening of music, food and fireworks is on everyone’s list, and Santa will be checking it twice with free professional photos at the Singleton Rotary’s North Pole grotto. John Street will become Santa Claus Lane, overrun with circus-style street performers including acrobats, a contortionist and bouncing elves, performances from Singleton Town Band and local dance groups, food trucks, market stalls and laneway bar, plus kid's activities like jumping castles, face painting, balloon artists, and free gingerbread and fairy floss. Retailers will also be open for late night shopping so you can check off all the items on your Christmas list. The evening will finish off with a bang with a fireworks display.
