Cheltenham Christmas lights switch-on


Join the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future as they parade through the town centre for this year’s Christmas lights switch-on event, taking place on Saturday 23 November 2019.

Starting at The Brewery Quarter, Cambray Place, or Montpellier, the ghosts will make their ways to The Queen’s Hotel, telling stories from the Dickens classic as they go. Festive joy will fill the streets as crowds gather around Father Christmas, who’ll then switch on the lights.

Spreading the joy even further this year, the illuminations are set to light up Winchcombe street too. So, get your camera at the ready – it’s time to get Christmassy!
