Hertford Town Council has started a two-year investment programme for the Christmas lights for the county town.
Hertford Town Council is investing in upgrading the Christmas lights and supporting infrastructure, and although this work has started, it will continue during 2023. For Christmas 2022, it will not be possible to have the full extent of the Christmas lights network lit up as in previous years.
However, Salisbury Square and Parliament Square will be fully lit as usual, and familiar lights will be seen in both Bull Plain and Maidenhead Street. The Christmas tree in Salisbury Square will also have additional lighting.
For areas of the town centre where it is not possible to display the usual Christmas lights, there will be special solar-powered mini Christmas trees for this year only and some additional festive lights in St Andrews Churchyard.
Hertford Town Council is once again running its competition for Christmas window displays, so we know that many shops are planning windows that will add to the Christmas festivities in the town centre.
