Christmas Lights Switch On
The event opens in front of St Lawrence Chapel at 5.00pm with Christmas music including a selection of carols played by The Warminster Brass Band at 5.30pm. There will be children’s Christmas music sung live by a Christmas choir at 6pm and the Warminster Lions Santa Workshop will be outside the Athenaeum. Feeling peckish? hot food will be available from the food vendors in the High Street.
Road closures will operate in the High Street and The Close from 4.00pm – 7.30pm and Market Place 5.30pm – 6.30pm.
At 6.15 a Lantern Parade will leave Three Horseshoes Walk and move through the town centre to St Lawrence Chapel. Led by the Spiderman Band and the spectacular giant spaceman, children are invited to join in with their own (safe) lanterns and/or glow in the dark face paints. (Children can have their faces painted at the Civic Centre Christmas Market from 10am – 4pm for £3). There is also a limited number of lanterns that will be handed out on the day.
Father Christmas will be in attendance and the lights themselves will be switched on at 6.30pm. We hope you’ll join us to welcome the start of the festive season in Warminster.
