Light Up The Valley returns for Hebden Royd Christmas Lights Switch On and much, much more!

Get ready for the much-anticipated Light Up the Valley, illuminating Mytholmroyd on November 18th (12-7pm) at Mytholmroyd Community Centre Car Park and Hebden Bridge on November 23rd (3-8pm) at St. George's Square and Hebden Bridge Town Hall.

In its third year, this promises to be the biggest seasonal switch on event yet, featuring live music, a festive market, Santa's grotto, diverse food and drink options, children's rides, competitions, and of course - the official Christmas tree lights switch-on!

Live entertainment and attractions at Mytholmroyd include the internationally famous fire artists Flame Oz, Royds Rockets children's rides, Hebden Bridge Brass Band and St. Micheal's Amateurs alonside local schools & Ukrainian choirs. Hebden Bridge will welcome live music from BLAST Funess, Halo Glow show, Hebden Bridge Junior Band, Story Magic Theatre and Battle of the Elves! Both locations will also welcome Christmas Tree Stilt Fairies and a special Frozen sing-a-long for everyone to get involved in.

This year Hebden Bridge will see the Thursday market supported by Calderdale Council extended into the evening. While at Mytholmroyd, a designated market will be brought to the Community Centre car park: On site will be Chunky's Kitchen serving burgers and sandwiches, alongside the Yorkshire Pudding Wraps & Jumbo Hot Dog stand, Jo's Kitchen, Orchard Bakehouse, Kiki's Crepes and the Yorkshire Chocolate Company - for those with a sweet tooth! Refreshments will also be available from the Vocation Road Show, Pickled Porker, Hebden Bridge Gin and Devil's Bridge Rum along with a wide selection of non-alcoholic options besides.

A Mobiloo facility at each site will enable visitors to experience the festivities without barriers with the latest zero-emission vehicle fitted out to provide accessible facilities for attendees that require them.

As with all big events in the locality visitors should be mindful of parking restrictions. There will be heightened parking enforcement in operation throughout the evening to ensure that access is maintained for residents and emergency services - especially on Thrush Hill Road, Mytholmroyd. We encourage visitors to choose more sustainable travel options such as walking or public transport to the event where possible.

Attendance is free at both locations courtesy of funding from Hebden Royd Town Council and support from Hebden Royd Business Forum, the Rotary Club of Hebden Bridge, and local businesses Benchmark Travel, Lumalite and Lamberts Print & Design.

Join us as we Light Up the Valley with warmth, laughter, and festive cheer! Event details vary slightly between the two locations so stay tuned and visit for the latest event details and to discover all the exciting things you can see and do at LUTV 23!
