The annual Christmas Lights Switch-On event, including the launch of the Heritage Trail App & New Edition Printed Town Mini Guide, takes place on Saturday 26 November 2022.

The usual popular features include the Droitwich Lions Grotto & organised children’s activities at St Richards House and the Fun Fair, Seasonal Stalls and Farmers Market on Victoria Square.

The entertainment leading up to the traditional countdown for turning on the lights starts from 5pm on Victoria Square (adjacent Lloyds Bank and the Library buildings) and features the Droitwich Spa – Salvation Army Band and then the Ising Choir.

The Switch-On is anticipated to be at 6pm (note the slightly later time than in previous years) and will be performed by the Mayor and Town Crier, hopefully accompanied by the Senior Student Team Members from Droitwich Spa High School.

The new Heritage Trail App will see its general launch take place during the afternoon of the 26 November at the Heritage Centre, as part of the Christmas event. It is planned to arrange special guided walks during the early afternoon to enable participants to use the App on their devices first hand.

The latest new updated version of the popular Mini Town Guide and Map will also be launched too.
