Fairy Tale Christmas

Bromley BID

Bromley town centre Christmas lights switch-on, 18th November

Christmas cheer will take over Bromley town centre on Sunday 18th November when the Christmas lights, are switched on. A fun packed schedule will run from midday to 6pm with something to keep all the family entertained. A specially constructed stage will be constructed in Market Square, where a huge screen will be erected to ensure no one misses out on the festivities. The stage will be in action from midday when the entertainment gets underway. We will see the return of compere Adam Hoffman and his huge array of festive Christmas suits.



The traditional Santa Dash gets underway at 2pm, and will see the town flooded with a sea of Santas as they finish their 2km run. The Santa Dash is a fun, festive, family orientated event over a 2km course through Bromley Town Centre. It's not a race, but a fun run, jog or walk around the course, allowing you to be a part of a fantastic Christmas experience as one of hundreds of Santas taking part




This will be followed by hours of family entertainment, including music, and dancing. The line-up for this year is:
