See Chichester light up for Christmas

Chichester, West Sussex

Chichester's Christmas festivities begins on Thursday 24th November with a Christmas lights switch-on event and fireworks to mark the four week lead up to Christmas.

Enjoy festive entertainment whilst tucking into seasonal roasted chestnuts and mulled win, as well as late night shopping and discounts and treats from the city centre’s outlets.

Father Christmas will also be in Chichester during the day and Chichester choirs will entertain the crowds with carols accompanied by Chichester City Band, before the Rotary Christmas Tree of Goodwill is blessed at the Market Cross.

Following the Christmas lights switch-on is the annual grand firework display over the cathedral.  Spirit FM will keep the street music flowing, whilst shoppers can take advantage of late night shopping until 8.00pm.
