Christmas is coming to Lutterworth



Christmas is coming to Lutterworth


The annual Lutterworth Christmas Lights Switch On event is taking place on Friday 30 November 2018, 6.00pm – 8.00pm and promises to be packed with all the festive fun as in previous years plus much more.


Plans for the evening are taking shape and will include all the Christmas favourites such as Santa’s grotto, the fun fair, mulled wine, a hog roast and lots to keep the family entertained including on stage entertainment (sponsored by Gazeley UK Ltd) and the Christmas Lights Switch-On at 7.30pm. All followed by what has become the traditional Fireworks Display!


Returning this year, a Christmas Market!! Over 10 Christmas themed stalls selling a wide range of Christmas gifts and treats will be positioned in spots round the town centre from 3.30pm – 8.00pm. So head over to do a spot of Christmas shopping while you are enjoying the festivities.


Again the A426 in Lutterworth will be closed to through traffic from 5.00pm to 9.00pm. The road will be closed at the north of the town from the junction with Bill Crane Way and to the south from the junction with St Johns Business Park. Local traffic will be diverted around the town centre, with no vehicular movement between the Wood Burner Workshop and Misterton Way.


This will ensure that residents and visitors will be able to enjoy the Christmas Lights event in a safe environment, unhindered by traffic.


Lutterworth Town Council would like to hear from you if you are able to volunteer as a marshal for the evening. We need people with local knowledge so that relevant diversion information can be provided to motorists at the road closure points.
