This Christmas Light-Up is set to be even bigger than last year.

Two giant trees will illuminate the driveway and the central Quad area, where the 30 strong, Rock n Soul Choir will sing popular Christmas songs.

There will also be performances from The Christine March School of Dance, and enchanting light displays projected on to the surrounding college buildings.

Santa and his Elves will be out and about spreading their Christmas magic along with children’s rides, festive shopping, food and drink.

Christmas Wish Appeal

As part of Christmas Light-Up we are offering the opportunity to sponsor a light for just £10 with a Christmas Wish.

Support will help to secure the future of Portland College, and support our current and future learners.

Donations can be made in memory of a loved one, or simply as a Christmas gift to the college.

Either call 01623 499106 or email [email protected] to request a form, write your wish on the bauble and send along with your donation, back to the college.

All of the Christmas wishes will be displayed on the big tree in the reception atrium from light up for the duration of the festive period.
