The Knowle Society

The Society is the lead organiser for one of the largest annual events in the village, the switching-on of the Christmas lights each year. Knowle Traders takes responsibility for all the lights on premises, the Society takes responsibility for organising the Christmas tree and the lights on that tree. The Knowle Society organises the closing off of part of Kenilworth Road and the logistics of the event.

On the day itself all the participating organisations provide stewards, Knowle & Dorridge Round Table provides Father Christmas and a street collection, the Traders provide refreshments, Arden Academy provides the Ardenaires to play and the church leads the carol singing.
