Southwold Christmas Lights

Southwold's popular Christmas Lights Switch On event is taking place on Saturday 28th November 2015… a change from the traditional Friday.The Christmas Lights Switch On is a real community event enjoyed by locals and visitors alike and local shops and businesses all join in the fun with an opportunity to enter a “best themed shop” competition.

There will be stalls along the High Street, carol singing and a Santa’s Grotto at The Swan Hotel. Father Christmas will be along at 7pm to switch on Southwold’s Christmas Lights.

Of course there are always opportunities to do some Christmas shopping and some of the shops have their stock on offer for this event. Don’t forget to use your My Southwold card to unlock some fabulous offers!

Traditionally all the shops along the High Street are decorated with trees and coloured lights.  Real Christmas trees are usually grouped together at the Market Place. This event is ideal for all ages so why not come along and join in? The event begins at 5pm.
