This year its in Saturday 2nd December starting at 5pm for more information check out the Facebook Event here:

With the roads in the town centre closing, New Mills is transformed into a seasonal family festival with the traditional switching on of the Christmas lights on the Prom, choirs, market stalls, family fun fair, food and drink, live music, dancing and above all thousands of people enjoying a great evenings free entertainment among family and friends and a vast array of street entertainers
