A new Christmas events brochure, giving residents and visitors a flavour of the festive events in Loughborough, has been launched. The brochure has been produced in partnership with Love Loughborough, Charnwood Borough Council and Capital; this year’s host for the Christmas Lights Switch On event.

The free brochure will showcase everything from the Santa Fun Run & Steam Trains, Carols, Concerts & Bands, Christmas Tree Festival & Pantomimes and a vibrant mix of Christmas Markets & Fayres from mid-November through to Christmas Eve. Not forgetting the annual Christmas Lights Switch On, hosted this year by Capital, which kick starts festivities in Loughborough.

The brochure includes all the information you need to plan your visit to Loughborough, including FREE car parking days, an event location map, details on how to claim the amazing offers on the Loyalty App & Card and where to post that important letter to Santa !

Lez Cope Newman, Chair of Love Loughborough Bid, said:

“With so much going on in and around Loughborough, you’ll be spoilt for choice this Christmas. The Robin Hood Pantomime is an absolute must for children and adults alike and this year’s Light Switch On looks to be a cracker with Capital’s Dino Pete and Tyles hosting the Live Stage Show. Look out for Love Loughborough’s first Festive Fayre, on Sunday 10th December, where you can meet Santa & his Reindeer AND get all your purchased gifts professionally gift wrapped for FREE !’


Love Loughborough BID Manager, Lisa Brown said “The festive program is great this year and we hope the brochure will encourage locals and visitors to come to Loughborough to not only enjoy the entertainment but to shop and dine as well. Loughborough has a superb mix of independent shops and High Street brands, alongside a fantastic array of Christmas markets and fairs, so there is no need to travel far for your Christmas Shopping. Don’t forget to claim the great offers and discounts available through the Loyalty App & Card”


Cllr Jenny Bokor, lead member for Loughborough, said: “The Christmas lights switch-on will really kick things off on November 26 and then there’s a host of markets and fayres in the run-up to the big day. There’s also free parking on Sundays and don’t forget we also still have our regular award-winning market on Thursday and Saturdays, voted the best large outdoor market in the country earlier this year. “We’ve also got a fantastic range of shops so please pop into town, enjoy the events and the shopping and get yourself into the festive spirit.”
