Ashford's Carnival of the Baubles

On Saturday 14 December, come and join the Illuminites finale - the Carnival of the Baubles! Starting at Elwick Place and Ashford Town Centre, a procession of giant, illuminated baubles, decorated by children from six Ashford primary schools will make its way down Bank Street to the Lower High Street led by our mechanical giant Jack Frostn. There will be a night market selling hot food and drink, making it the perfect family evening.

The Ashford Snow-dog Auction

he Gala Auction will be a glamorous evening of fine wine, entertainment and bidding, where the beautiful pieces of art will be auctioned off to their ‘furever’ homes.

Our auctioneer is the TV personality Michael Hogben, known to many as ‘Hoggy’. Michael is an expert auctioneer and art dealer who has featured on Bargain Hunt and his own series Auction Man. Michael will be supported by our host, TV personality and antiques dealer, Alison Chapman. Alison has featured in programmes such as Real Deal and Secret Dealers. Both Michael and Alison have fallen in love with the Snowdogs and all that this project has brought to the Ashford community.
