Things to See & Do
Each year the town council puts up and takes down the town’s colourful Christmas lights and organises the annual switch-on event. The town council also provides the Christmas tree in the Market Place.
For example at the 2018 switch-on event there were indoor and outdoor markets, fairground rides in the High Street, the amazing Snow Lion walking through the streets, food stalls in the Market Place, Santa (of course) with his elves and the evening ended with live music. All in all more than 1,000 people crowded into the Market Place to see the lights being switched on and to watch the short film which was produced and shown on the day. Thank you to Westbury schools and business for getting involved.
The film can be viewed here: Merry Christmas Westbury
Christmas 2019 – Saturday 30th November
Christmas may still be a few months away but councillors and staff at Westbury Town Council are busy preparing for the Westbury Christmas Celebrations and Lights Switch-on.
As well as preparing a packed programme of festive fun, the town council is also taking bookings from stall holders for our Christmas Market (1pm to 7pm in the town centre). The indoor pitches are fully booked and outdoor pitches are still available with a very low price.
The town council is keen to involve as many local businesses as possible in the event and we are offering special rates for Westbury based businesses. Whether you sell at lots of events or are thinking about taking a pitch for the first time, then this event will be perfect for you.
Stall holder booking forms are available below, please return to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact us if you need more information.
