Bedford's Christmas Lights Switch On

Thursday 23 November 2017

Everyone is invited to attend this free Christmas event when Bedford Borough Council will light up the town with another magnificent firework display to mark the start of the Christmas period.

Entertainment before the switch on, organised by BedfordBID, will take place from 3pm – 7pm in Harpur Square and will include a visit from Chase & Skye from Paw Patrol, a snowboard simulator, Christmas balloon modelling, the Cairngorm reindeer and lots of Christmas games.  

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “Get your hats and scarves at the ready and be sure not to miss this fun, family event which is guaranteed to get you in the mood for Christmas. There’s always a sea of smiles as the atmosphere builds up for the switch on event as peoples’ festive spirits are raised.”

Father Christmas will be at the switch on event, so get there early to get a good spot and help welcome him to Bedford!
