Norwich Christmas Switch-On event will not take place in 2020

Published on Tuesday, 13th October 2020

The city’s much-loved Christmas Switch-On event will sadly not be taking place this year.

While the lights will still be illuminating the city for the festive period, the ongoing Covid guidance means Norwich City Council is unable to celebrate with its usual public event to celebrate them being switched on.

Councillor Alan Waters, Leader of Norwich City Council, said: “It will come as no surprise that we’ve had to cancel this public event, in light of the continuing Covid situation, but please be assured the city will look as Christmassy as ever."

We will be releasing more information about alternative ways of celebrating Christmas in Norwich throughout the coming weeks.
