From Thursday 13th until Sunday 16th December there will be lots of animation around the City with Box Wonders and Grand Christmas Procession. Box Wonders are terrific toys which will come to life with a burst of colour, light and sound each night once the Guildhall clock strikes 6pm. On Saturday 15th December there will be a Grand Christmas Procession from 6pm-7pm. There will be a Sound of Lights trail through the historic quarter of the city.
