Oxford Christmas Lights Festival
Start your Christmas celebrations early with the annual Oxford Christmas Lights Festival. The festival has been taking place since 2009 and has evolved over the years from a single-day event to a full three-day weekend celebration featuring stunning light and sound installations, a festive market, music, dance, and plenty of free activities in venues across the city. As a light festival, you can expect to see a broad programme of events from light displays and installations to performances from local dancers and the famous Broad Street Christmas Market.
This year the Christmas Lights festival expands further into the city’s neighbourhoods and celebrates the Art of Connectivity. As well as the events in central Oxford, there will be an additional four main festival hubs at Rose Hill, Cowley, Blackbird Leys, and Cutteslowe. These local creative hubs will highlight partnerships between Oxford’s leading cultural organisations, community groups, and residents to create an all-inclusive atmosphere that brings everyone together.
