Christmas Parade continues with Christmas Magic in Martinborough

November 21, 2018 November 2018 No Comments

There is nothing quite so magical as Christmas, so two years ago Fiona Couchman launched the Christmas Magic in Martinborough Show to create awareness and gifts for children in need in our local community. While she took a break last year to do some gifting of her own donating her kidney to a friend in need and spent theChristmas recovering but she is back this year with another exciting show. 

Fiona has a musical background and performed in MADCAPS for the last few years as a way of immersing herself into the community. With vast experience in event management, she felt an opportunity existed to capitalise on the local Chridtmas carols and create a professional show that would showcase some of the local talent with a great combination of Christmas Carols, Pop and Rock songs that would have people dancing in the square or tapping their toes as they enjoy an evening of entertainment with their families.

And because Christmas is truly magical for the children, the event starts with a one hour Christmas show brought to you by Enchanted Entertainment. This professional troupe will entertain with characters like princess Elsa, Ariel, Moana and more. In addition to a full Disney show there will be stations for princesses and super heroes to spend time with their favourite star getting pampered with face painting, magical hair dust and more.  

But the winners of this great event will be the children and underprivileged families of Martinborough. Entry into the event is by way of a Christmas present for a child. We are asking people who are attending to bring a child’s gift named boy/girl and age group. Children are free to attend and for those who wander into the square and want to enjoy the show, Santa’s helpers will be at hand with donation buckets to raise money for the new children’s playground. 

On December 8th the Christmas Magic in Martinborough will kick off with the popular xmas parade starting at 5.00pm and entertainment will continue till 10.00pm. 

After the Enchanted Entertainment children’s show, there will be the Business House carols challenge, Martinborough MADCAPS  carols and the two-hour Christmas show. 

To perform a show like this doesn’t come cheap, providing a professional staging, sound and lighting set, so local businesses have got behind this initiative with tremendous support from the retailers and hospitality.

We want to thank our Gold sponsors Martinborough Community Board who are right behind the cause and our Silver Sponsor P and K who are sponsoring the Children’s show Enchanted Entertainment. Additional Silver Sponsor Cotter & Stevens are providing the magical Christmas Tree that will be lighting up the square. Our Bronze sponsors Peppers Parehua, Neighbourhood café and  Cool Change and all many retailers and hospitality that have made this event possible. You all epitomise the spirit of Christmas and the very special community that is Martinborough. Be sure to Pack and Picnic and head down to the square for a jam – packed evening of Christmas Magic.
