Each winter, our town gets dressed into its festive cloak of traditional sparkly white lights, from the end of November right through to twelfth night. Join us at the Holt Christmas Lights switch-on event Wednesday 13th November from 5pm. Craft stalls, refeshments, entertainment, shop windows to admire, Santa's Grotto to discover, fireworks at 6.30pm and a pantomime horse race/dash up the high street to cheer on - who will win this year's Sowerby's Holt Christmas Trophy?
