We are hoping to restart the annual Christmas Lights Switch-on event this year after a 2 year break.

The Directors and volunteers have started preparations for the event which will be held on


We hope to provide two Father Christmas Cruises on Windermere, community stalls in Market Cross, the main Procession with Father Christmas and lantern bearers, and a concluding Firework Display in Rothay Park.

Details of prices for the two cruises will appear here, together with how they can be purchased. Normally the tickets go on sale on October 1st.

Please check back here from time to time to find more details of the day's plans as they are confirmed.


The future of the lights depends very much on local people volunteering to help with the many tasks! We need to recruit new young volunteers! If you are prepared to help secure the future of the lights, you can find out more by emailing
