Diss Christmas lights 2020

Our annual Christmas lights switch-on is a well-loved event, which attracts around 3,000 visitors each year. And we know that it forms part of a very special, festive tradition for many residents and visitors. Sadly, the 2020 Diss Christmas lights switch-on couldn't take place due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19 and the latest government, Public Health England and Health & Safety Executive advice. But that didn't stop us marking this special event - with a little help from the Mayor and Santa.
