Christmas in Exeter is going to be bigger, brighter and better than ever before!

Join us on Sunday 18 November from 11am – 5pm for the annual Exeter Christmas lights switch on event on Exeter’s High Street 

Hosted by InExeter and Radio Exe favourites Ashley Jeary and Ben Clark, the popular ceremony will officially mark the countdown to Christmas.

Visitors and residents will be treated to a festive fun filled day for all the family with live music, entertainment and lots of other festive activities culminating in the lights being switched on at 5pm.

This year will be the third year that InExeter has funded city-wide Christmas illuminations, bringing festive cheer across the city. With additional lights being added to Castle Street, Fore Street, and the Guildhall, as well as continued light schemes throughout Gandy Street, North Street, South Street, High Street, Paris Street and Sidwell Street and Princesshay and The Guildhall hosting their own spectacular festive lights.
