ANNUAL CHRISTMAS LIGHT SWITCH ON EVENT NOVEMBER 27, 2020 – COVID-19

Following a meeting held on October 5, Town Council has made the decision to cancel its Annual Bright Friday Christmas Light Switch on Event on 27 November. Council was unanimous in the decision based on current Government Guidelines regarding social gatherings. The Christmas Light Switch on event is a free, public event that has taken place for decades and we are disappointed this will be missing from our calendars this year.The Town Council can only strive to host a bigger and better event for 2021 and look forward to being back to normality. The Christmas lights (this year displaying a new scheme) will still be turned on in Knaresborough towards the end of November and Chamber of Trade is planning to display Christmas trees throughout the town as is its usual practice. Knaresborough Town Council would like to take this opportunity to thank the residents of Knaresborough for their continued support and co-operation. Stay safe. October 2020
