Get looking in the Snowflake Search

Be in with a chance to switch on Thame’s Christmas lights!


Christmas is fast approaching and to get Thame into the festive spirit, the Town Council will once again be launching a treasure trail around the town centre for the young and young-at-heart throughout the month of November.


In the lead up to Christmas Lights Switch-On on Friday 1 December, 24 Snowflakes have been hidden in shop windows around Cornmarket, Upper High Street, North Street, Butter Market, Swan Walk, Greyhound Walk and High Street. You can start hunting high and low from Wednesday 1 November – can you find them all? All of the Snowflakes are numbered to give you a helping hand. You can also use #SnowflakeSearch on social media for clues!


The first entry out of the hat with all the correct answers will get the chance to push the plunger on the town’s Christmas lights plus there are prizes for the runners up. To enter the competition all you need to do is download an entry form from or pick one up from the Town Hall Information Centre, write down all the shops which have one of our numbered snowflakes in their window and return your entry form to the Town Hall Information Centre by 4pm on Thursday 30 November. Don’t forget to include your name, age, address and contact number.


Good luck and happy hunting!
