This Christmas, some of Bath’s most iconic streets and buildings will be brought to life with magical illuminations as part of the Bath Christmas Light Trail

Join us in Milsom Street from 5pm on Thursday 25th November for the official switch-on of the Christmas Light Trail. Count down to the moment the wonderful lights switch on and enjoy the all-new rainbow illuminations in Milsom Street.

We will be joined by Pride of Britain Award-winner Harmonie-Rose Allen, who will lead the countdown and switch on the festive illuminations.

As well as being lit up with all-new rainbow illuminations, Milsom Street will also be glittering with lanterns that have been built and decorated by local schoolchildren, and we encourage you to bring your own lanterns and torches to ensure the city centre glistens on the evening.

We will also be launching Thursday evening late-night Christmas shopping, and many retailers around the city centre will stay open to allow you to make a start on your Christmas shopping. There will be lots of pop-up entertainment around the city centre, and the Bath Abbey Girls Choir will be there to sing some festive favourites.

You can enjoy festive entertainment and meet Father Christmas outside the Fudge Factory. Plus, Fat Giraffe Gifts in Milsom Street will be offering free mince pies throughout the evening.
