On Friday 26th November this year, Beccles will be lighting up the town with Christmas Spirit, hosting it’s annual light switch on event. From 5pm till 9pm there will be stalls of all sorts and Christmas Entertainment on the main stage. The lights will be switched on at 6pm by local hero, Paralympic Champion, Gold Medal Winner Jordan Catchpole.

Please note that this year we have opted to not have the children’s rides to allow more space for visitors, we hope to bring the rides back next year. We will of course still have lots for children to see and do including stalls hosting children’s games, Christmas Donkeys and a chance to see Santa, as well as of course experiencing the beautiful Christmas Lights around the town centre.

After not being able to put the event on last year, we cant wait to see all of Beccles and beyond turning out to support this much loved community event, signalling the start of Christmas cheer and encouraging all involved to shop local and support our independent shops and businesses for Christmas 2021 and the years ahead.
