Christmas in Andover 2016Andover’s official countdown to Christmas begins with the annual Christmas Light Switch On Event in Andover’s High Street on Friday 18 th November.

This year Andover Town Council, who provide the lights for the town, are extending the lights along the river from Bridge Street to Town Mills.

As part of energy saving it has been decided to leave the lights on 24 hours a day, rather than replace timers with digital timers. This will ensure our town enters the festive season with lights within the town centre. The lights will be on from 18 th November until we see in the New Year in 2017.

Festivities and Entertainment start on the High Street from 5pm and the countdown will take place at 7.30pm, culminating in the Big Switch on the Lights, followed by the Chantry Centre Firework Display.
