Christmas Light Bus is back this December!

Great news! The Oxford Christmas Light Bus is returning to the streets of Oxford on Saturday 18th December 2021 and this time, we left it up to you to decide where the bus should travel.

We've teamed up with JACKfm, who will once again play absolutely fantastic Christmas tunes for everyone to enjoy! Same as in November, our team will also be giving out delicious sweet treats to everyone who comes to see the bus at one of the stopping points along the route.

The bus is still going to feature in its windows the same amazing illuminated artwork created by the organisers of the Oxford Christmas Light Festival.

Stopping location details

Our colleagues will do their best to keep to the scheduled times, however, please be mindful that the above times are approximate. This may mean that the bus could arrive at the stopping location a few minutes earlier or later than planned. On the day, there will be a live tracking link available for you to follow.

Whilst at our stopping locations, our colleagues will be distributing a range of sweet treats to children. If your child has any allergies, please let our colleagues know. 

We can't wait to drive the Oxford Christmas Light Bus again!
