Celebrating St Nicholas Day in Bridgwater

Diversity Voice would like to invite you to a St. Nicholas Day event. This will take place on Sunday 4th of December at Victoria Park Community Centre hall in Bridgwater TA6 7AS from 2.00pm to 4.00pm. Children of all ages are welcome to come, together with their parents. The party will be a great opportunity to meet friends and new people and to learn about Christmas customs. Doubtless, an outstanding part of the event will be arrival of Santa who will deliver gifts. Plenty of fun activities are planned together with refreshments for the young and old!


There will be a chance for you to familiarise yourself with the services that Diversity Voice offer and those of our partners such as: Simpson Millar Solicitors, Citizens Advice Bureau, West Somerset Advice Service etc.

As we all know the government have given a green light for a new power station at Hinkley Point C. The investment has given us the opportunity to introduce a new service - Community Consultation. Together with the Citizens Advice Bureau we can help you find out more about how to access community services in Sedgemoor and West Somerset.

We are delighted that the Polish Shop ‘FRESH’ are supporting our event this year. They will be providing tasters of Polish food that they’ve prepared specially and will have special offers of Christmas products available.

Parents wanting to come with their children need to let us know by 18th of November.

St Nicholas Day is a time in the year observed on 6th of December, celebrated to commemorate Saint Nicholas, the Bishop of Myra. It is a traditional occasion to give small gifts to children and loved ones at that time.

St. Nicholas Day is a popular occasion for children in many parts of Europe because children usually receive gifts on this day. Some European cities such as Bari, Italy recognize St. Nicholas as the patron saint and celebrate with different activities such as gift-giving, parades, feasts and festivals. St. Nicholas is referred to by many names throughout Europe such as Sinterklaas in the Netherlands, Świety Mikołaj in Poland or Nikolaus in Germany. In the days leading up to December 6, children throughout Europe put their shoes or a special St. Nicholas boot in front of the fireplace or the front door at night to find them filled with small presents the next morning.
