Christmas Lantern Parade and Light Switch-On

November 24 @ 17:00 - 19:00


We’re delighted to welcome back Frome Lanterns for another wonderful Christmas Lantern Parade, this year with the theme ‘ice’. The parade will be fronted by Jamma de Samba, providing fabulous entertainment and music.

The Christmas Light Switch-On will be presented by the Mayor of Frome, with some added extra-special touches. Both the Lantern Parade and the Christmas Light Switch-On will take place from 5pm-7pm.

There will also be, for the first time, a Christmas Little Night Market from 4pm-9pm in the Market Yard. Hosted by The Frome Independent, the Night Market will be offering up seasonal food and drink, festive gifts and bundles of Christmas cheer.

This evening will be an absolute treat for Frome. Make sure to be there so you don’t miss out – bring your best festive spirit!
