The Penzance BID team reveals how you can light up your life over the festive period.
This year, our Christmas theme is ‘Light it Up’ – think all things glitzy, sparkly and shiny.
A Christmas Window Competition will see the town’s businesses competing to create the most sparkly, glittery window displays. Shoppers will be able to nominate their favourite display from participating businesses online and via postcard, with the most popular outlet winning a £250 prize.
The Pirate Light Christmas Trail will feature windows at key locations around the town displaying illuminated piratey wares.
The Christmas Light Switch On will be at 5.15pm on Saturday 27th November. The Christmas Market will be trading from 2pm onwards, where you can browse an array of local artisan stalls for that perfect Christmas gift. As always there will also be street entertainment and music throughout the town all day including – NEW for 2021 – The PZ Town Silent Disco!
The Humphry Davy Lantern Parade is BACK! As you may know, it was cancelled last year due to covid restrictions, but it’s ready to light up your life once again. The parade will take place at 4.30pm, Saturday 18th December. There will also be street entertainment, Silent Disco and a second Christmas Market.

Finally, don’t be surprised if Sir Humphry Davy also gets a piratey makeover…
