Minchinhampton Life, a new group of Minchinhampton residents committed to breathing fresh life into the town, made Saturday 2nd December the first official day of Christmas by illuminating the lights on a festive tree standing adjacent to the Market Square and the War Memorial.
Timed to coincide with the end of the Christmas Fair at Minchinhampton C of E Primary Academy, the switch-on at 5 pm – in conjunction with the Parish Church of Holy Trinity – by the Chairman of Minchinhampton Life, John Mounsey, was warmly welcomed by local residents who were disappointed by the town's lack of Christmas lights in 2016.

Encouraged by the new community group, shops and residents in the town's High Street are also reviving the tradition of lights and Christmas trees on poles outside their premises, while the iconic 17th C Market House will be setting up its own tree in the undercroft to welcome the Festive Season.
It is hoped that this will be the first of many events that will bring the town together and make it better known as a beautiful place in which to live and an ideal location from which to explore the environs of the Commons and the wider Cotswolds generally. » Less
