The Bath Christmas lights switch on is nigh!

We’re excited to announce that the city’s Christmas lights will be switched on by Mary Berry CBE on Tuesday 12th November. The excitement will get started at 5.30pm with a whole host of local entertainment to keep the crowds in the festive spirit.

Mary Berry, Queen of Cakes starred in the BBC’s Great British Bake Off, and there’s particular poignancy in her role as the special guest as she hails from the city of Bath. In fact, she first realised her talent in the kitchen whilst a student at the High School in Bath, and she’s gone on to inspire thousands with her skills and passion.

The city takes pride in inviting much-loved stars from all walks of life to lead the switch on each year, and previous guests have included John Cleese, Nicholas Cage and HRH The Duchess of Cornwall, so Mary will be adding her name to a prestigious list! If you’re visiting a b and b in Bath while you get your Christmas shopping done then don’t miss out on this family-friendly event.

Bath’s lights always transform the city, welcoming Christmas with colour and an elegant theme that sets off the buildings to perfection. The theme this year will be chandeliers, so expect to be dazzled.
