Leicester City Council start putting up Christmas lights

By Tyler Arthur 

Representatives from the Leicester City Council have started to put up this year’s Christmas lights, in preparation for the festive season which always sees the city centre transform into a winter wonderland.

On Sunday, October 21, the council’s contractors started the long and impressive task of putting up the thousands of lights and decorations around the main streets of the centre.

There has been a yearly additional spend of £50,000, the same that has been spent annually for the last three Christmases, to replace any broken decorations or lights, whilst also getting some new exciting decorations.

The lights will be switched on on Thursday, November 22.
