Light Up Orpington 2022


This Sunday, join fellow Orpingtonians as the town centre is transformed for a festive extravaganza and the countdown to Christmas begins.

On Sunday 20th November, from 2pm - 7pm, Orpington’s Christmas lights event returns to the town centre, brought to you by the town centre business community - Orpington 1st, and supported by Manak Solicitors and The Walnuts Shopping Centre.
