It is with great sadness that the Southwold Christmas Lights Management Committee have decided to cancel the popular Switch On event scheduled for Saturday 28th November 2020 due to the COVID 19 Pandemic.

We have been holding off making this difficult decision until the last possible moment hoping that matters might improve but during the last couple of weeks in appears to be getting slightly worse again. It therefore leaves us no choice but to cancel due to the restrictions on social gatherings as the safety of our residents and visitors are of paramount importance. However we will still be lighting the Town up during December as usual to try and bring some much needed festive cheer to everyone during these very difficult times.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our main sponsors Adnams plc and the Town Council, who are both having their own COVID 19 challenges at the moment, for their continued support and we look forward to planning a bigger and better event in 2021.
