Don't miss the Our Bury St Edmunds Lights Event 2021!

For Free family fun we invite you to experience The Bury St Edmunds Christmas Lights Event. This will take place on Thursday 18th November 2021 between 3pm and 8pm when the town centre will be lit up for the first time.

Not only will you be able to enjoy this dazzling experience but you will also be treated to an exciting and creative variety of gift stalls, charity stalls, hot food stalls, your favourite local businesses, street entertainment and children’s’ fairground rides. This year we are very pleased to bring you some new and exciting entertainment including:

-  Santa, elves, and Santa’s sleigh

-  Victorian Carol Singers

-  A stilt walking elf

-  Magician and Balloon Modeller

-  A Stilt walking Illuminated Fairy

-  A Toy Soldier

-  The Salvation Army performing Christmas music

A-Plan Insurance will also be bringing two supercars, an Aston Martin Rapide and a McLaren GT, for people to sit in and make a donation to the Round Table.

Chief Executive of Our Bury St Edmunds Mark Cordell said: “In the past there has been great excitement as a crowd has gathered at the stage for the countdown to the Switch On. This year we appreciate that people may not want to crowd together – in fact many are likely to want to do the exact opposite. Therefore we’ve taken the difficult decision not to have a stage, which encourages crowds to stand in front of it watching the different performances and the countdown to the Switch On.

“After careful consideration about the best way to give everyone the opportunity to stay as safe as possible without missing anything, we’ve decided that the lights will be on as the event opens and as darkness starts to fall visitors will be able to wander around the town to see the Christmas Tree, our brand-new free-standing lights, which will be on display for the first time and all the other much loved illuminations.”

We are pleased to announce that we are working in partnership with local community radio RWSfm 103.3 who will be broadcasting live from the actual event in the Cornhill. They will be reporting on the festivities and talking with visitors at the event.

We look forward to seeing you on the 18th November and wish you a #BuryMerryChristmas
