Gloucester Christmas Lights Switch On

Event ended


Gloucester’s Christmas lights will be switched on once again by the jolly bearded man, with the festive lantern procession also set to light up the city streets. Now in its fourth year and celebrating the 110th anniversary of Beatrix Potter’s much-loved book, the procession this year will feature the combined creations of children from local schools and professional artists, based on ‘The Tailor of Gloucester’.

The parade will set off from the St Kyneburgh Tower on Kimbrose Way/Southgate Street, passing through the city centre, before finishing with a short carol concert at Gloucester Cathedral.

See the Gloucestershire Christmas lights guide for more festive events in the county.
