Plans be­gin for Christ­mas lights dis­play

Bath Chronicle - - NEWS -

Work will soon be­gin to put up Christ­mas lights across the Bath and North East Som­er­set dis­trict. The fes­tive fea­tures will be in­stalled in the cen­tre of Bath, Combe Down, Larkhall, We­ston, Keyn­sham, Mid­somer Nor­ton and Rad­stock be­tween Oc­to­ber 15 and Oc­to­ber 18, with the lights be­ing turned on in the weeks fol­low­ing. The lights are be­ing sup­plied by Blachere Il­lu­mi­na­tions UK Ltd, which has man­aged projects in such il­lus­tri­ous places as Dis­ney­land, Monaco and Har­rods. As in pre­vi­ous years, B&NES is pro­vid­ing the tree in Bath Abbey Church­yard and at the Hollies Gar­den in Mid­somer Nor­ton. Coun­cil­lor Paul My­ers, cab­i­net mem­ber for eco­nomic and com­mu­nity re­gen­er­a­tion, said: “For many peo­ple the count­down to the fes­tive sea­son starts as soon as the Christ­mas lights are turned on. “We need to en­sure they are put up in good time so the work doesn’t im­pact other events, such as Bath’s Christ­mas Mar­ket.” The lights in South­gate will be il­lu­mi­nated on Novem­ber 15 in time for the Christ­mas Mar­ket, which takes place from Novem­ber 22 to De­cem­ber 9.
