Christmas across Stockport

What’s happening

The transport network is expected to be busier than usual over the Christmas period as there are a number of festive events across Stockport. Journey times are likely to increase during the run up to New Year, so you should plan ahead if you are taking part in, spectating or simply travelling around the local area.

There are a number of planned Christmas lights switch on events taking place towards the end of November in Stockport.

We have provided help and advice to keep your sled moving so you can prepare and minimise the impact on your Christmas travel and shopping trips. This page will be continually updated during this time.

You can find out more information on all the events on Stockport Council’s website
