I think it's safe to say that Christmas feeling is finally building in Bromley Borough. Maybe it was the appearance of the big department store Christmas adverts this weekend (which one is your favourite...? I think John Lewis just about pips the others to the post for me!)
And nothing signifies the onset of Christmas more than the turning on of the Christmas lights across the Borough, alongside all the events that go with it.
To make sure you don't miss out on any of the events this season, check out the timetable of events here:
