Join us for the big Christmas lights switch-on!

 The countdown to the festive season gets underway this weekend, with the switch-on of the Christmas lights.

 Join us in the Market Square for the switch-on from 4pm on Sunday 19 November.

 There’ll be plenty of fun and music on the main stage, with TFM’s Steve and Karen keeping everyone entertained.

 Santa will be making an appearance and carrying out the big switch-on, before the event finishes with a two-minute firework display.

 This year, the event will include an accessible viewing area for wheelchair users. Look out for the signage towards the front of the stage area.

* Free reuseable hot drink cups will be available from Newcastle Building Society while stocks last.
