Christmas Light Stwich On at Pickering

Christmas Light Stwich On at Pickering


For a small town, Pickering makes a big deal out of its Christmas Lights switch on, with a special celebratory event held each year, packed with music and family friendly, festive entertainment.

Regular attractions include Santa and his sleigh, performances from local bands and community groups, as well as a spectacular lights display that adds a real festive feel to the town.

A proper community event that attracts people from all around the local area, proceeds from the refreshments sold at the switch on are ploughed back in to the next year’s event, to ensure that it continues to grow and develop.

Reduced parking charges will also apply throughout the town.

Children welcome
