Valentine’s Lamp Lighting ceremony
For those new to Frome or visiting for Valentine’s Day, this is a must see!  Frome’s Valentine’s lamp, situated at the top of Catherine Hill, is the only working gas lamp in Somerset. Dedicated to the memory of Saint Valentine it also has a renovated King George V post box attached for you to post your love letter or card.  At 6pm (prompt!)  the lamp lighter, dressed in period costume, will start the ceremony.
