Christmas In Bury St Edmunds


To make it easier for our visitors to plan their Christmas in Bury St Edmunds and to discover the great choice of shopping, food & drink and entertainment over the festive period six local organisations (Seasonal Six)* have come together to make this happen. One exciting new development is the release of a new website to help visitors plan their festive fun with ease – just visit


To help visitors and locals get in the spirit of Christmas with family and loved ones Our Bury St Edmunds will be hosting the Our Bury St Edmunds Christmas Lights Event. This magical event sees the town centre illuminated with dazzling light displays and new for 2021 large light and festive themed decorations. There is so much happening in the town centre including:
