The distant ringing of Sleigh Bells means only one thing… Father Christmas is on his way!

He will be joining the Mayor of Hebden Royd for the Christmas Tree Lights Switch On events in Hebden Bridge & Mytholmroyd to kick of the festive season in style.

The first event is the Hebden Bridge Christmas Tree Lights Switch On which will take place on the 29th November at 5:30pm in St Georges Square.  Father Christmas and the Mayor of Hebden Royd will flick the switch at  5:45pm. With carols, music from the Hebden Bridge Junior Band and Father Christmas giving our sweets to the children this is sure to put you in the Christmas Spirit.

Then enjoy the fun all over again as Father Christmas flies in to St Michaels Square, Mytholmroyd on the 1st December. The event will start at 5:00pm with the switch on at 5:15pm. Prizes will also be presented to local children with an artistic flair who have designed new Christmas features for Mytholmroyd. With music, singing and lots of fun, do come and join us!

After each event stay in town for the spectacular Valley of Lights event, pop up markets and late night shopping.
