Watford's Christmas Lights Switch-On
Watford gets into the festive spirit this evening with the Christmas lights switch-on at St Mary's Square.
From 5.30pm the bell ringers of St Mary’s will start the evening’s entertainment. This will be followed by the switching on of the Christmas tree lights by Blag Theatre Company Christmas Revue and carols, choral performances and readings.

''Frankly if people don't use their shops they'll lose them and I think that'll be tragic not just for jobs but for the whole character of some of our towns so get out there this Christmas and shop 'till you drop.''
