Southwold's Switch on Night

Father Christmas c1980

The 2014 Christmas Lights will be switched on by Father Christmas on December 5th. We are very fortunate that Adnams have once again provided generous funding to make Southwold a special place in the run up to Christmas. Come along to enjoy the event and, even if you can't get here in time for the switching on of the lights at 7.00pm on Friday, pop into town over the weekend.  There's always a great atmosphere over the whole weekend with so many people enjoying the peaceful environment of Southwold to do their shopping rather than the manic commercialism of bigger towns and cities.

Thanks to our own Shirley Boggis for the use of her dad's fantastic picture of Lights Night in the '70's
