Lighting up Luton to include Christmas Market in 2018

We're delighted to announce that Lighting up Luton for Christmas 2018 will be taking place on Saturday 1 December, with a Christmas Market planned to run from Thursday 29 November until the switch on of the lights in St George’s Square.

​As part of this, we're keen to hear from potential businesses who would be interested in having stall in the market, especially those that would fit in this year’s theme.

The theme for Chtistmas 2018 is around the different ways in which Christmas is celebrated by Luton’s diverse population.
There are also a number of sponsorship and advertising opportunities for businesses who want to support this high profile event, including:

  • Christmas trees
  • giant snow globe
  • children’s craft area
We're also looking for a children’s face painter to join us on the Saturday.
London Luton Airport Ltd (LLAL) has generously offered to be the  principal sponsor this year, making Lighting up Luton possible. 
The council owned company takes no part in the day-to-day running of the airport, but does have a significant role to play in planning for its long-term success, and is sponsoring Lighting up Luton as a thank you to Luton residents for their ongoing support.
Chief Operating Officer for LLAL, Robin Porter, said: “We’re delighted to be the principal sponsor of Lighting up Luton this year and we are very excited about the plans for what promises to be an excellent event."
"We really value the support we get from the people of Luton, which is why we look to sponsor events such as this as a token of our appreciation."
Laura Church, Corporate Director of Place and Infrastructure, said “We’re very pleased that this year, we can offer local businesses the chance to be part of our Christmas Market and are really looking forward to seeing local sponsors supporting this fantastic – and free – seasonal family event.”
