Eltham High Street parade

Thursday 15 November, 4pm to 7pm

Eltham High Street,
Eltham SE9

The theme this year for the free annual Eltham Lights Up Christmas lights switch-on is the 12 Days of Christmas.

Highlights include street performers, a live music stage and a lantern parade featuring local schools.

At 6pm the High Street Christmas lights will be switched on, and a fantastic illuminated parade of lanterns, created by hundreds of local children and their families, will start.

The parade will end in a spectacular pyrotechnic finale.
