Christmas Lights

The Town Council regrets to announce the cancellation of the annual Christmas Lights Switch On event which was due to take place on Friday 4 December 2020 at the Crown roundabout.

Christmas Tree

The event traditionally marks the start of the festive season in Horwich and features the lighting of the civic Christmas tree by the Town Mayor, followed by a carol service featuring a choir and band from local schools and a visit from the Rotary Santa Sleigh.

The decision has been taken in the interests of public safety during the continuing Covid-19 situation. However Christmas lighting displays and the Christmas tree at the Crown roundabout will light up the town centre during the coming weeks.

Council Meetings

All Council meetings will be held remotely until further notice and this will be reviewed on a regular basis. For further information contact the Town Clerk.
