bath christmas lights starOne of the highlights of Bath’s festive calendar is the switching on of its Christmas lights.

This year’s switch on will take place on Wednesday 12th November, with entertainment in Milsom Street starting at 5.30pm. The evening will begin with a performance from ‘The Fade’ of City of Bath College. Next to appear will be Bristol based singer-songwriter Jane Taylor.

The Christmas lights will be switched on by stars from Bath Rugby, along with Justin Webb from the BBC Radio 4 Today Programme, recently named as Patron of the Bath Rugby Foundation.

Bath Company Enlightened will be creating a spectacular light and sound show as a highlight to the evening and a fitting start to Bath’s Christmas shopping season.

Why not make an evening of it and enjoy dinner in one of Bath’s many fine restaurants, see our eating out guide for more information.
