York is spreading Christmas cheer far and wide this year.
The finishing touches have been added to the city’s winter lights scheme with a new display on Piccadilly.
This LED display shows symbols from different faiths and reads ‘Season’s Greetings from York’, next to one of York’s main transport interchanges.
Delivered by the York BID (Business Improvement District) in partnership with Make It York, the winter lights scheme has an elegant new design this year.
Many of York’s major thoroughfares have received a new look, including Coney Street, Stonegate and Parliament Street.
The lights have been extended to cover several new areas this year. Piccadilly, Castlegate, George Hudson Street and Nessgate have all been illuminated for the first time.
York BID’s executive director Andrew Lowson said: “York welcomes thousands of people during the festive period, and the lights create a truly special atmosphere during this time.
“They also give us an opportunity to extend a warm Yorkshire welcome to people of all faiths who reside in or are visiting the city.”
