Bedford Christmas Lights Switch on 2018

Christmas is coming to town on November 22nd 2018, with Love Bedford and the 500+ businesses who are behind the BedfordBID (Business Improvement District).

On Thursday November 22nd the Love Bedford team, in conjunction with the Harpur Centre and Bedford Borough Council, will begin to unwrap Christmas.        

Families can start in Bedford town centre in the afternoon to see Santa and his REAL reindeer, have pictures taken in the Snow Globe, see the iridescent Bubble Man and meet a Marvel and DC Comic character followed by:

Xmas Lights switch-on including a GIANT Christmas Tree in on Silver Street - with help from long-established Michael R. Peters electrical suppliers of The Broadway and The Art Centre of Howard Street, aided by Priory Primary School, and beautiful new lights at Riverside Bedford.

As the darkness deepens:

Fireworks along The Embankment will begin, again co-funded by the BedfordBID.

Christina Rowe, Director of BedfordBID says: “Love Bedford businesses work together throughout the year to keep customers coming back. In the festive season we do even more to light up the town. This includes the Xtra Xmas lights seen in previous years on side streets, and this year a brighter giant Christmas Tree in Silver Street.

“In addition, Riverside Bedford is entering into the spirit with its new festive display.”
