Trowbridge Lantern Festival and Christmas Lights Switch – On

Trowbridge Town Council is proud to be hosting the spectacular Trowbridge Christmas Lantern Parade again in 2023 and this year we hope to make the event bigger and brighter than ever!

This year the Trowbridge Lantern Parade and Christmas Lights Switch-on will be taking place on Friday 17th of November.

We will see hundreds of beautiful, handcrafted willow lanterns paraded through the town centre led by the fantastic Jamma da Samba who will bring a real carnival feel to the evening.  The Lantern Parade will bring together the community of Trowbridge to share in the magic of Christmas and spread light throughout the town!  The town’s Christmas lights will be switched on in Fore Street and there will be spectacular fireworks in the town park.  Musical entertainment, funfair rides and fantastic food and drink will help add to the festivities!

Full timings, details of vendors attending and the entertainment schedule will be announced in due course. We will also be running lantern making workshops in the community again this year from October so keep an eye on our Facebook page for further information!
