Christmas is back in Luton!

Updated 11th October 2023

We are so excited to be able to share the exciting events that are happening in Luton this Christmas!

This Christmas, Luton BID have worked together with Luton Council and The Mall to organise an exciting array of free entertainment for the whole of the town centre and beyond to enjoy.

Meet Peppa Pig & George!

We’re pleased to announce that our annual Christmas lights switch-on, Lighting up Luton, will be returning this year on Saturday 25 November at St George’s Square, in partnership with Luton Council and the Mall Luton.

There’ll be outdoor entertainment and live music from 2pm, until the light switch-on at around 6pm. Our special guests this year are Peppa Pig and George, who will be making personal appearances at intervals throughout the day, courtesy of Luton BID along with funded face painting. 

The Mall Luton will open their free grotto on the day from 10am, enabling visitors to meet Father Christmas and see the Elves’ Toy Workshop. The grotto will be open every weekend from 25 November until 18 December, then every day until Christmas Eve.

For the latest updates on the town’s Christmas events and not only, make sure to subscribe to our weekly What’s On Guide.
