After long discussions over the uncertainties of COVID and how it will develop during the autumn, Wigton Town Council has made the decision not to hold a large-scale event this year in the High Street at the time of the switching on of the lights. The good news is that the Council has purchased new and improved Christmas lights for the centre of the town, to be switched on by the Mayor and Deputy Mayor on Sunday 28th November at 5.30pm

In addition, we have funds available for community groups and estates or streets who may be organising their own event – so please get in touch with us as we may be able to help you financially.

The Festivals Committee next meet on 18th October, at 6.30pm in Wigton Market Hall so do please come along. We would love to hear your suggestions and ideas.

We will also be running a competition for the best festive decorated house and shop window.

Looking forward to 2022, as well as the return of “Spring Fling” we plan to hold a major event on Saturday, 4th June to celebrate the Queens Platinum Jubilee as well as the return of the “Live at The Fountain” Christmas Extravaganza.
