Published: 05/11/2019The infamous pantomime horse race is set to return for its fourth year at Holt’s Christmas light switch on event on Wednesday 13th November.
The race sees traders and members of the community in three-person teams, dressed as horses, dashing from one end of Holt high street to the other, and back again, in a bid to be crowned champions and win the trophy.
Sowerbys in Holt won the race in its first two years with ‘Maximillian’ (pictured below with managing director Max Sowerby) and have this year decided to sponsor a cup for the winners.
Holt is galloping ahead with their festivities this year as it’s the first market town in Norfolk to be holding its Christmas light switch on, an annual event organised by a small group of volunteers.
This year the public are in for a treat once again with activities including; a parade, community choir, carol singing and of course - Father Christmas taking centre stage to turn on the lights at the end of the evening.
If you’re planning on heading to the North Norfolk town to join in with the festive fun, then be sure not to miss the ever entertaining pantomime horse race which will be taking place between 5:30-6pm at the front of the main stage.
