Ongar Christmas Lights 2021

The last Friday in November traditionally serves up the annual switching on of the Christmas lights in Ongar High Street.
It’s an event where thousands of Ongar residents come together to celebrate the switch on.
(Sometimes a celebrity switches on the lights and sometimes a local person does it. – not keen on this line, thoughts?)
Children’s choirs start the evening ,singing in the church , food stalls and shops open for the evening .
A funfair and hotdogs and the Christmas bazaar with Santa complete a great Ongar night.
