22 Nov Christmas has come to Chelmsford!
Sunday 17th November kicked off the Christmas celebrations in Chelmsford! The annual Christmas Light
Switch-on event saw the streets of Chelmsford packed full of friends and families enjoying the entertainment
and activities that the city had to offer.
The two stages featured an abundance of acts, from the angel-like
voices of The Cathedral Choir to the flippin’ good Elf Show Acrobatics! Whilst the streets and shopping centres
were filled with even more festivities for the whole family to enjoy.
The honour of turning on the lights this year went to the four CM1STMAS Community Award winners, voted
for by the public. These inspiring individuals along with the shortlisted nominees, who have contributed their
time and effort to benefit the parishes of Chelmsford, were on stage for the infamous switch-on. To read more

If you happened to miss the light switch on event, make sure you plan a visit to Chelmsford over the festive
season. Not only to see the city lit up with more lights than ever before, but this year something magical will
be happening every weekend in the lead up to Christmas, as part of CM1STMAS ‘12 Days of Christmas’. Plus
with the Après Ski bar, ice-skating, toboggan runs, snow gardens, markets and much more on offer, will mean
there is something for everyone!
