Autumn and Winter events in Shrewsbury

The weather may be cooling but Shrewsbury's calendar is still bursting with activity. Experience original events from Shrewsbury Chocolate Festival to Shrewsbury Festival of Literature, and not forgetting our seasonal Christmas celebrations.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation a number of Shrewsbury's autumn and winter events have been cancelled, including the Christmas Lights switch on, Carols in the Square and the annual panto.
Whilst we endeavour to keep this page as up to date as possible, we would recommend checking with event organisers before attending.
