Christmas Carnival, Market, and Lights switch-on: 

The Carnival will take place on the 24 November down Harpenden High Street with our Christmas Market running alongside. Father Christmas and his Elves will be stopping by again to visit the children of Harpenden, and our famous Christmas Lights will be switched on as the sun goes down. More details will be posted in the coming months regarding the Christmas Carnival, Batford Lights Up!, and Southdown Lights & Lanterns Extravaganza.
