Christmas in Penzance

Christmas in Penzance


This year, Penzance will be illuminated with festive sparkle as we go to town with the theme ‘Christmas Songs’.

Due to the current pandemic there will be no official Christmas lights switch-on this year however the Christmas lights across the town will be turned on sometime towards the end of November to early December, so keep watching to see when they light up.

From the 1st December – our Christmas  window competition starts with masses of windows across the town in shops being decorated in this years theme, Christmas Songs. This year we have more local schools than ever taking part, make sure you visit the town to see which is your favourite and vote for them using the QR code on the shop window.
