Take Part in the Cutteslowe Light Trail

Calling all crafters, makers, tinkers and creators!

Create your own illuminated window display at home for the Cutteslowe Light Trail, which will be taking place from 20 – 22 November as part of Oxford’s Christmas Light Festival.

The Cutteslowe Light Trail will be made up of:

  • Illuminated window displays in residents’ windows
  • A beautifully lit pavilion in Cutteslowe Park with window displays created by community groups

All of these places of interest will be added to the city-wide Light Trail Map. Take a walk in your neighbourhood and spot your neighbours’ creations by following your own route using the online trail map, or pick up a paper copy of the Cutteslowe Light Trail from Charterville Care Garden Centre from 20-22 November.

Taking Part Safely

Please note: It is everybody’s responsibility to follow the most up-to-date government guidelines regarding Covid-19 (https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus). Please familiarise yourself with national restrictions in place and do NOT encourage anyone to do anything that might put themselves or others at risk. Most of all, please keep yourself and your loved ones safe.

Charterville Care Garden Centre

The Garden Centre in Cutteslowe Park will be open from 5pm – 8pm for the sale of Christmas Trees, in line with government guidelines. Please note that the centre will only allow a maximum of 5 households inside at one time. Please be mindful of other members of the public and socially distance yourself from others to avoid any gatherings or large queues forming.
