Chatteris Christmas Lights Established in 1985

Established in 1985, Chatteris Christmas Lights are recognised as the best display for many, many miles around and the scheme is acknowledged as superior to those in much larger towns and cities.

The Lights Committee is entirely voluntary and the results of their many hours of hard work, before and after the Switch On event, are enthusiastically appreciated by the residents and visitors to Chatteris over the Festive Season.

During the Festive Season the Lights are on daily from 3.00 p.m. until Midnight so you can come into town, wander through the main streets to enjoy them, and then drop in to one of the restaurants, cafeterias, public houses or take-aways for some refreshment.

The lights have been a great success story from the outset, and with well deserved support from the community, will continue to be so. Volunteers, Donors and Fund Raisers are always needed so, to be part of that support, Click on the button below.

THE CHRISTMAS TREE

The Christmas Trees are purchased from Nunton Christmas Trees, collected and delivered by Rowell’s Transport (Free of Charge) and feature in the Churchyard and Market Hill Gardens. They are erected on the last Saturday before the Switch-On.

SWITCH ON 2022

 Saturday 26th NOVEMBER at 4.30 pm

Switch-on night

Switch-on night has become one of the main events of the year for Chatteris. Each year we approach one of the three local Primary Schools to nominate a child to join Santa to switch on the lights from Market Hill Gardens. 

CHRISTMAS TOWN

From approximately 3.00pm the Town Centre is always packed as traders entertain their customers with seasonal cheer and street entertainment.

The fair ground rides keep the crowds happy, especially the children.

EVERYONE WELCOME

The event includes Stalls with a festive feel, representing local organisations and small businesses, in the Market Hill area.
