About the event
The annual Christmas Lights switch-on at Merchant Square will take place on Wednesday 4th December 2019. The official countdown will begin at 6pm plus free mulled wine for grown-ups, mince pies and carol performances to enjoy surrounded by the glistening lights around the canal.
From the Floating Pocket Park to St. Mary’s Bridge, the whole of Paddington Basin will be illuminated for the festive period. There will be lights on the water, illuminated bridges, floating bobble lights and even a floating Christmas tree!
Head on down with your work colleagues, friends and family throughout the festive season until Thursday 2nd January 2020.
