What's on December 2023

Christmas Festivities in Tetbury Friday 1st December.


This year the annual formal light switch-on event will be taking place on the evening of Friday 1st December.

Long Street will be closed to traffic from 5:30pm until 7pmto allow for the parade and Church Street will be closed to traffic from 4pm to9pm, this is to allow stallholders to set-up and for us all to enjoy the festivities. So, for those of you planning your journeys home please take this into account.

There will also be a temporary “No Parking Restriction Order” from 3:30pm in The Green, between Market Place Mews and St. Michael’s Church. This will allow traffic to pass through easily, without fear of obstruction or damage being caused to other parked vehicles.

The night will kick off with a lantern- lit procession starting at 6:45pm from the bottom of Long Street and going up to the Market House led by Santa with his Elves and of course the children with their paper lanterns.

Those wishing to take part in the lantern-lit procession should assemble at the Town Council Offices from 6:20pm onwards with the procession starting at 6:45pm, Santa will be on hand to greet you, everyone’s welcome and all children need to be accompanied by an adult. The Christmas Team will be on hand to distribute the paper lanterns.

The lights will be turned on officially after the procession at approximately 7pm. This year we are extremely happy to welcome Jilly Cooper, Tetbury Mayor, Councilor Liz Farnham, and the winners of St Mary's school bauble competition. We also like to thank the Feoffees and The Thirteen who work tirelessly to light the Market House and Lowsley-Williams Family for the Beautiful Christmas Trees. The charity, trading, and refreshment stalls will then be officially open; Santa will be available in his Grotto in the Post Office from 7:15pm

Free Parking after 4pm in the Chipping Street car park and as always the Old Railway car park remains Free.
