Established in 1985, the town's festive display is recognised as one of the best in Cambridgeshire.

The lights committee is entirely voluntary and the results of their many hours of hard work - before and after the switch-on event.

Their efforts are enthusiastically appreciated by the residents and visitors to Chatteris over the festive season.

During winter the Christmas lights are on daily from 3pm until midnight so you can come into town, wander through the main streets to enjoy them, and then drop in to one of the restaurants, cafeterias, public houses or take-aways for some refreshments.
