Thame Christmas Lights Switch On – Friday 1 December 2017

Thame Christmas lights switch on event takes place on Friday 1 December 2017,

Thame in Oxfordshire will host its annual community Christmas event which typically attracts thousands of local residents and families all looking to spoil themselves or their loved ones with good food and great gifts, not to mention the lantern parade and fantastic selection of entertainment and attractions on offer, including the return of our popular Santa’s Grotto and Go-Karts!

There will also be  a human-sized snow globe, for you and your family to take photos in and play in the snow! The event is a celebration of music, food, craft and dance, organised by the Town Council, to commence the festive season.

Stalls will line the High Street selling everything from German sausages and mulled wine, to Christmas wreaths and handmade gifts. It’s the perfect time to begin your Christmas shopping. There will also be plenty of hot food and drink to keep you warm, including mulled wine and hot chocolate!

Entertainment starts at 4:45pm with the light switch on at 7pm.
