The season of festivities is fast approaching, and plans are well underway for the annual and much anticipated Frome Christmas Light Switch On.

As always, there will be the magical Light the Night lantern parade through the town centre led by the joyous Jamma de Samba. Each year the procession has a theme and this year’s is Enchanted Winter Garden so get your creative thinking caps on for your creations.

There will be the usual treats in store with music and food available and the Christmas light switch-on itself with some added flair from the Mayor of Frome, Cllr Andy Wrintmore. He has hand-selected the yet to be named special guest who will flick the switch beside him on the balcony of the George Hotel.

If you’d like to join the procession, lantern kits are available to buy from Frome Town Hall, Discover Frome Information Point and the Share shop later in the month. There will also be lantern workshops on the following dates for those looking for some ideas and inspiration:

28 October, 10-11:30am at Frome Library: family lantern workshop
2 November, 4-6pm at Frome Town Hall: community lantern workshop
