It’s the most wonderful time of the year…nearly!

With the dark nights’ drawing in and the cold weather making you dig out the knitwear, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas.

At Southampton, we traditionally take the festive season to the next level, pulling out all the stops with events, decorations and many an opportunity to enjoy a merry time with friends and this November is no different.

Once again we have teamed up with the University to organise the annual Christmas Light Switch On on 22 November. Keep snug with a glass of mulled wine or cider, or a warming cup of hot chocolate and experience a magical evening to mark the beginning of the festive season.

It’s free to attend, but if you register in advance on Eventbrite, you can get a free drink on arrival.

Find out the full timetable to make sure you don’t miss anything on the official Facebook event.

We’ll see you there with sleigh bells on.
