George Yard Christmas Lights 2019


Held virtually for the first time in its history on Saturday 12th December at 6.30pm, the 2020 Braintree District Christmas Lights Switch-On will feature a vibrant mix of talented local acts to perform festive songs, together with an appearance from Santa himself. Local community heroes will also be sharing their messages to the community, thanking them for sticking together during the pandemic this year. There will also be a recorded Christmas message from the Chairman of Braintree District Council.

This will lead up to the various displays lighting up in different parts of the district. From Braintree town centre and Braintree Village, to Witham and Halstead high streets, it’s a great way to sit and watch Christmas come to the Braintree district from the comfort of your own home.

How to watch

The Braintree District Virtual Light Switch-on event will be free to watch on the Braintree District Council’s Facebook page and YouTube channel on Saturday 12th December from 6.30pm.

People can submit their fabulous festive home displays as a photo or video and be featured on Visit Braintree District's social media pages in the lead up to Christmas. Send to:
