There’s nothing like the sight of Christmas lights and a tree to brighten up the winter nights in Camborne & Helston.

The main attraction is the giant tree in the towns, decorated with hundreds of colourful bulbs and topped with a shining star. The tree is surrounded by a dazzling array of lights that illuminate the streets and buildings, creating a magical atmosphere. The lights are switched on in late November, and stay on until early January, making our towns a cheerful and cosy place to celebrate the season.
