Christmas 2022

Christmas is here in Leigh.  We hope you enjoy the new lighting scheme around the town and in Library Gardens (there are some teething issues that we are doing our best to sort).  They will be on until 5th January 2023.  

Due to operational and administrative burdening costs, the 'Leigh Lights' event no longer takes place but Leigh Town Council has provided a host of other activities which are detailed here and updates can be found on our social media posts.

A Host of Activities for all to Enjoy

  • Advent Giving Hamper - Now closed, please drop your hampers to Leigh Community Centre by 9th December
  • Santa's Post Box - Now open until 19th December
  • Winter Coat Rack - Now open until 31st January 2023
  • Make a Wish Workshops - SOLD OUT
  • Winter 'Wanderleigh'
  • Community Carols diary
