The Christmas Thing 2016

Once again we are joining forces with the Humberston Parish Council to put on the “Christmas Thing”. The event will take place on Friday 9th December 2016 on the St Peter’s Church green and Wendover Hall. It includes the Lighting of the Christmas Tree, a visit from Santa to his grotto in Wendover Hall, plus teas, coffees and mince pies too. Last year’s event was a hugh success, we are sure this year’s will be even better.

WickStead Park 18th December 2016 – SOLD OUT

The Humberston Happening is inviting you to join them on a new Christmas adventure on Saturday 18th December 2016. We are organising a coach trip to Wickstead park for their special Christmas event – just what you need to get you into the Christmas spirit.

So what is Wickstead Park? Well for a start there is their Christmas spectacular – ‘Oh What A Christmas Cracker.” This is said to be an hilarious show that will have you laughing and singing all the way to Christmas.

There will be singers, dancers, actors and a Fabulous band to perform the best festive songs of all time including White Christmas, I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Claus, Oh I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day and many many more.

Now we know that similar Christmas specials can cost around £40 for the show ticket alone. We have been able to arrange this one for just £35 per person including the coach fare. Sounds pretty good don’t you think?

But it is better than that! Your £35 also includes a two course Christmas lunch with roast turkey and all the trimmings, and jam roly poly and fresh dairy ice cream for pud, all served before the show.

And that is even not all! After the show you will have Afternoon Tea; a selection of cakes and a pot of tea. The price of £35 includes everything.

Last Night of The Proms 2016

Humerston’s big night out happens this year on Saturday 19th November. The venue for our ever popular Last Night of the Proms concert will once again be the Starlight Suite at the Beachcomber Entertainment Centre, North Sea Lane, Humberston. Music commences at 7.30pm and the doors and bars will be open from 6pm onwards.

As before the concert will be performed by the talented Lincolnshire Hospitals Band, the only band in the country to have a direct connection to the NHS. What will be different will be their entirely new programme, although no doubt it will combine a varied mix of music to suit all tastes, play with their customary flare. Last year their performance simply blew us away. No doubt they are planning something equally spectacular for our November event

This is the 9th Humberston Proms Concert and ever increasing audience figures must be a testament to its success.  If you have been before we will be delighted to welcome you back. If you haven’t why not come along this year. We can promise you all a great night out with a popular musical extravaganza, and a rousing patriots Proms finale.

All proceeds from the concert are donated to the Humberston Park Special School, Hydrotherapy Pool Appeal. A very deserving local charity.

The Humberston Happening Committee, the Hydrotherapy Pool Appeal organisation, the Lincolnshire Hospitals Band and Beachcomber all treat this as a truely charity event. Every penny raised goes to help the special children of Humberston Park School, who deserve such wonderful benefits by using the pool.

The Starlight Suite at the Beachcomber offers comfortable tabled seating, excellent viewing and acoustics, a well stocked bar and ample car parking.

Tickets are £7 via, Cleethorpes Tourist Information,  Beachcomber Entertainment Reception Office or Hough’s Coaches, Middlethorpe Road Cleethorpes or phone 01472 812543


The Christmas season will be upon us quite soon now; not soon enough if you’re a youngster, far too soon maybe if you’re an adult. In Humberston this year, there is no better time to get into festive mode than Friday 4th. December.

This is the date of an exciting new event in the Humberston calendar. The Humberston Happening are delighted to have joined forces with the Humberston Parish Council to put on a very special Christmas occasion for our very special village.

The Humberston Parish Christmas Happening will encompass the traditional Lighting of the Christmas Tree on the green opposite Humberston Church, followed by community carol singing around the tree. The Christmas Tree will be lit at 6.30 Pm so please arrive a little earlier.

The end of the carol singing will herald the arrival of Santa Claus on his illuminated Sleigh and he is looking forward to meeting and greeting lots of children in his specially prepared Grotto in Wendover Hall. He will be happy to accept “Santa” letters and promises to reply to them all personally. How he finds the time we don’t know, but find the time he will. It’s all part of the magic and mystery of Christmas.

In Wendover Hall there will be tea, coffee, mince pies and more for the adults and juice and goodies for the youngsters. Add some seasonal games to aid the merriment and it promises to be a wonderful traditional village evening. It is an event with something for everyone, young and not-so-young. Please note the date and come along with your children, your grandchildren, your friends and your neighbours. The Humberston Parish Council and the Humberston Happening together will do their best to make it a great success, only your support can make sure it is !


Goldwing Coaches have most generously donated a luxury coach and driver for a Christmas Shopping day trip to York on Saturday 12th. December. (not sure about the luxury driver – but we are certain he will be polite, courteous and extremely helpful). Goldwing have asked the Humberston Happening to organise this event on their behalf and we are delighted to do so. Pick-ups will be in Humberston and the price is just £ 15. Every penny will be donated to the Humberston Park Special School – Hydrotherapy Pool Appeal.

York is a special place to visit at any time but, at Christmas, it takes on an atmosphere of almost magical proportions. There is always lots to do and see and there will even be the St. Nicholas Christmas Fayre ,extended for the first time this year. What a great opportunity to get in the festive spirit and indulge in a bit of last minute Christmas shopping.

There are still places available on this special seasonal excursion. Please contact Trevor or Marian on 812543 or email to book your seat.
