Our local Churches are appealing for help to find their lost flock of little sheep. It seems that some of the flock have done a runner and are in hiding. Investigations to date lead them to believe that they are hiding in some of our High Street shops.
Secret agents have narrowed the field and place coded signs in relevant shop windows. So starting on the night of the Extravaganza we need you to collect a Search Form and go find those lost lambs. Those woolly jumpers are exactly that, woolly! They are hand knitted mini sheep/lambs, each with their own name tag.
Meet Little Purl. He’s a helpful little lamb, seen here helping out at the Parish Office. So, search all the shops and write down the name of the lamb and the shop you saw it. There may even be a reward.
The Wincanton Choral Society is the latest addition to the Extravaganza entertainment. They will be performing over the course of the evening, starting in Market Square at 6:30pm after the Mayor has switched on the Town Christmas Tree Lights.
We are delighted to announce that Bugfest will be joining us at the 2014 Extravaganza. They made their first appearance at one of the Sunday Street Markets earlier in the year, and also at the District Council Play Days. They were a big hit at both events.
So come to the Christmas Extravaganza and visit Bugfest in The Wincanton Baptist Church Hall, Mill Street from 5pm. Come and see all those slithery, slippery reptiles, spiders and bugs.
The Extravaganza is a great opportunity to get your business seen by lots of people who come to the event. Every year we now see around 3000 people over the course of the evening. You can advertise in our programme. But you’ll need to be quick as we really need your advert by end of this week latest. Download our advertising form and submit it with your fee and advert as per the details on the form.
Whether you are a High Street business or an edge of town business this is an opportunity to support and be part of one of the main events of the year. Support this event and help us to not just keep it going, but to create other new events at other times of the year.

The Extravaganza is on, and planning is well under way. We are hoping for another great night with market stalls, entertainment and support from local high street traders opening late. Come and see just what you can find in your own High Street. Wincanton High Street is an Aladdin’s Cave.
