The Christmas Lights

Switch-on

HWBIDCo's Christmas cracker: we help kick the festive season off in style…

The Christmas Lights have been a fundamental part of HWBIDCo’s event calendar for many years.

The popular event is FREE to attend and features a packed timetable of live music and family-friendly entertainment – including street performers and special guests.

Along with Frogfest, our Christmas Lights Switch On attracts thousands of visitors into the town, with an estimated footfall increase of around 700% compared to average days. It’s also a great excuse to take advantage of the free parking and enjoy some late-night shopping.
