Following a statement that was issued by Penzance Council on Friday 27th November concerning the town’s Christmas Lights, the Council is delighted to say that the majority of lights were connected and ready for the switch on that took place on Saturday 28 November at 3:00pm.
Due to the national lockdown, the Council’s contracted electricians were unable to access many business properties in the town in the week leading up to the switch on to set the timers.
It was feared that many lights would not be switched on until the following days or weeks. But the majority of the lights, including the lights on the Christmas Tree, were successfully connected in time and provided the town with some festive cheer as the sun set last Saturday evening.
Penzance Council will continue to work closely with businesses to ensure that any remaining lights are connected as soon as possible.
The Christmas Lights in Penzance are a real community effort and Penzance Council greatly appreciates the support of Penzance BID who have organised the light curtain at the bottom of Market Jew Street, the up lighting at the Market House, and the mini Christmas trees throughout the town centre.
Penzance Council would also like to thank local residents and businesses in the town who have provided access to their properties and our contractors who have worked so hard again this year.
All lights are set to come on each day from 3:00pm to 11:00pm. If anyone sees any lights which are not on during the set times or spot any damage please contact us.
Penzance Council wishes all residents and visitors to Penzance, Newlyn, Mousehole, Heamoor, and Gulval a Merry Christmas – Nadelik Lowen!
