Christmas in Frome

Frome’s yearly Christmas celebrations are always popular and a great treat to kick off the season. The event in the town centre features a lantern procession, carols, Father Christmas and his grotto, festive food stalls and of course the lights switch-on.

The celebrations bring many opportunities for gift shopping. Shops stay open late during the festivities, and the Christmas Extravaganza market at the Cheese and Grain is the perfect place to find gifts for friends and family. Other markets include the Christmas Charity Fair and the Christmas Farmers Market, or there’s always the December Frome Independent.
