Christmas Lights and Festivities

Magical Christmas


Christmas lights will be a virtual event this year but our towns will still be lit up, looking festive and colourful.  Look out for family festive window trails in each town.  

Whilst there will not be a Victorian Market, the markets in each town will be open with added dates so you don't miss out.
