About 150 people watched as the Christmas tree lights were switched on in the town on Sunday.
Attendees enjoyed Christmas songs and carols and former Prime Minister Theresa May gave a speech before the lights were turned on at about 5.45pm.
The family event raised more than £340 for Wokingham-based charity Building for the Future.
The event, organised by Twyford Together and sponsored by Amy Goodall-Smith, featured more than 200 wooden stars on the tree depicting Christmas wishes written by children from The Colleton Primary and Polehampton Junior schools.
Amy, of Goodall-Smith Wealth Management Ltd, is inviting people to write a wish on a star for a £1 donation to Building for the Future.
She said the event was ‘a massive success’.
“I think it was even better than last year,” she added.
