Christmas Lights & Events 2019 for Oxfordshire:

The town chambers and business partnerships in OTCN are working together to boost Christmas trade at what is a crucial time of year for our towns.

We start by posting the dates as we get them, and then add event details as they emerge. Each year since we launched the initiative it’s proved to be an ever more popular source of information for people thinking about going to events in their local towns.

If you are a trader and require details of these events, you can get contact details for many of the town councils, chambers or business partnerships who run them from their own websites. Just click on the town you need on the map above.

If you have any relevant information about your town's Christmas events that does not appear here, then please contact us at .
