Christmas Is Coming To Otley

Dear Businesses,


Otley Light Switch On

Monday 23rd November 2020 at 7pm – 7.15pm

Otley’s Christmas festivities start this coming Monday at 7pm with the switch on of the town Christmas lights, that will also be commemorated with a special one-minute Otley Clap for Christmas.

So if you have a Christmas Tree above your business, please remember to switch it on from 7pm Monday.

The Otley Clap for Christmas event is intended to bring us all together for a minute, even if we have to be socially distanced in our homes or places of work. While the Spring’s weekly Clap for Carers proved ever popular in its support of NHS staff and other key workers, stakeholders organising the Christmas version such as the Town Council, Otley Town Partnership, The Chamber of Trade and ourselves, are encouraging you, the people of Otley, to extend your show of support and gratitude beyond our wonderful carers.

So whether you want to show your support of the NHS, give some appreciation to some of our businesses that remained open and provided a service during tough times, or simply remember a loved one, the event will offer the chance to bring the people you care about to mind at this special time of year.

Christmas Window Competition

Also, just a reminder that judging for the window dressing competition is taking place on Sunday 6th December and a £75 Buon Apps voucher is available for the winner! Good luck everyone!

Christmas Super Sunday Opening

We have had a fantastic response for the extra Sunday opening days from businesses across town. These businesses are listed on the Buy in Otleywebsite here. If you’d like to join in and create a Christmas shopping buzz around Otley on Sunday 6th and Sunday 20th December, please email
