London Colney Christmas Light Switch On 2020 Event Cancellation

London Colney Parish Council have taken the difficult decision to cancel the annual Christmas Light Switch On Event, this year due to have been held on Sunday 29th November due to the Covid-19 pandemic government guidelines and concerns of increased cases.

The event attracts crowds of 1500-2000 people to the High Street in London Colney, and under current government guidelines it would not be possible to safely put on the event. Taking into consideration the upfront costs, resources and advance notice to suppliers required to organise the event, even if government guidelines were to change nearer the event, at such short notice we would not be able to safely organise an event on this scale.

The Village will still be lit by a Christmas Tree on Chester Gibbons Green, and festive lighting on the High Street for residents to enjoy.
