Portchester Community Association organises the Christmas Lights Switch on event on behalf of  Portchester Traders Association. It is held annually on the first friday of December. 

The Precinct tree is entirely funded through the Portchester Gala raffle, without the donations of prizes from local businesses there is no tree, so we thank those who have contributed prizes and bought tickets to make this event happen. 

The Portchester Christmas Lights switch was cancelled in 2020 due to Covid restrictions but we are looking forward to the switch on event on Friday 3rd December 2021 with performances from local schools and groups.  Starting at 5pm with the switch on by Pompey legend Alan Knight MBE !
