: The area will be alight on December 6, with a festival of light parade. At 6pm, hundreds of local schoolchildren and families will congregate at the Town Hall carrying their own homemade lanterns.

The procession will walk along Regent Street and through Canal Walk before arriving under Christmas Tree in Wharf Green. The Mid-West Big Band will then lead the parade into traditional carol singing. If you would like to join the parade, register online at www.swindontowncentre.co.uk.
