Lit up for Christmas at Bell Court

This weekend we welcomed the festive season with our annual Christmas Light Switch On, filling Bell Court with twinkling lights.

Everyone who joined us for the big moment got to see Father Christmas himself turning on the lights with the help of Charlie Davies, winner of the Stratforward Make a Wish Competition, after they enjoyed a carriage ride around the town.

Throughout the day, visitors enjoyed carols and Christmas tunes from Birmingham Brass Band, Omnium Gatherum Choir and Two Tone, as well as tucking into free hot chestnuts.

We hope you enjoyed the start of Christmas at Bell Court and don’t forget to share your photos on our Facebook (Bell Court Stratford), Twitter (@BellCourtLife) and Instagram (@bellcourtstratford) pages!
