Lighting Up Brentwood  - Saturday 28th November 2020, 12-6pm

Lighting Up Brentwood is the largest community event on the Council’s calendar.  The event around Brentwood High Street celebrates the start of the festive season.  Much of the popularity of the event is down to the strong network of community organisations that are involved in providing activities along the length of the High Street, which is closed for the event. There are almost 80 market stalls selling festive arts and crafts, and hot food and drink, together with Santa’s Grotto, walkabout acts and other children’s activities. There is a packed programme of performances on three stages, primarily by local schools and talented community performers. The event attracts a lot of attention from the local press and in 2019 we estimated over 15,000 people attended the event throughout the day with a packed switch-on by the Mayor.
