Festive celebrations are set to begin slightly earlier this year in Leamington.

Leamington will be the first town in the district to host its Christmas lights switch-on on Sunday November 6, with the festivities forming part of the Diwali and Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s Gurpurab celebrations in the town.

The fun starts with a yuletide market from 10am. The stage outside the town hall will feature live music, a Kirtan from the Gurdwara Sahib and a reading for Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s Gurpurab.
