Where to see those Christmas Lights in Norfolk this festive season.

Norfolk has no shortage of sparkly, twinkly experiences to light up these short, dark days this season.

First of all, there are the annual Christmas Lights switch-ons, making our already pretty places all festive and shimmery.

At time of writing, the dates and times for some of these are as follows for 2023 (in chronological order):

Norwich – Thursday, November 16th. 5.30pm – 7.15pm. Gather in front of City Hall, Norwich.
There is no Tunnel of Light in Norwich city centre this year but the City will still sparkle with a fabulous new Christmas lighting scheme based on LED lights powered by renewable energy. For the switch on, expect live music and festive entertainment, a funfair on Gentleman’s Walk and late night opening for Norwich Market.

The Forum, Norwich has their Christmas Tree Light Switch-on on Friday 1st December at 10.30am, accompanied by carolling and other entertainment as well as the Norwich Global Village Market.
