Another spectacular festive light switch on will be happening in Chester as the city prepares for Christmas!
On Thursday 16th November the Christmas lights will be switched on and there will also be a magical parade. The parade will take on a Twelve Days of Christmas theme, where local artists and community groups will parade from Princess Street before heading past the Town Hall towards St Werburgh Street, Chester Cathedral and down to Eastgate Street, Bridge Street and around the city centre. The Chester Brass Band will lead the parade and will be performing some festive favourites to get you in the Christmas spirit.
