There will be lane closures in the city centre this morning while a Christmas tree is put up.

A lane in College Street will be closed, as will the turning lanes at Cathedral Square roundabout, between 9.30am and 12.30pm today (Thursday, November 16).

A Christmas tree is being installed on the roundabout ahead of Worcester’s Christmas lights switch-on event on Saturday, November 25.

The big switch-on will feature live music and other entertainment on a stage in Cathedral Square from 4pm to 7pm, plus a festive parade from The Hive.
