Save the date and join us to mark the beginning of the festive season with the annual lights switch-on event!

The switch-on, which this year takes place on Thursday 23 November, will kick off a festive weekend in the city.

The Christmas lights switch-on will be at 6.30pm with the Lord Mayor, Santa Claus and the official count-down to the dazzling display. Street arts will entertain around the city centre and the stage programme on Humberstone Gate West will feature live music and The Paradimes closing the show. Stars from De Montfort Hall’s pantomime, The Beauty and the Beast, will be outside Visit Leicester with limited-edition goody bags from 5pm.

Take a look at the Christmas tableau in Town Hall Square where creatures will be brought to life in this Narnia-themed display. The traditional nativity scene will also be set up, and you can enjoy Christmas carols and a brass band performance.

Don’t forget Leicester's Christmas Market will be welcoming visitors for the first time – so be sure stop by the city’s New Market Square and find a special gift, or just soak up the atmosphere with a hot drink.

Plus take a visit to Highcross for Frostival featuring the most captivating atmosphere, with elegant ballerinas emerging from an icy mist to recreate the romantic scenes of Tchaikovsky's famous Swan Lake Ballet.
