As December draws ever closer, Wetherby is gearing up to be transformed into a sparkling Christmas wonderland.
Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s event.
When is it?
Our Guest MC, Alec B Cann will start the proceedings with our town Mayor Galan Moss on 22nd November 2018 6pm-8pm.
Where is it?
Our festive stalls will surround Wetherby Town Hall on Market Place, with entertainment and the inevitable countdown and switch on happening on the Town Hall Steps.
As well as the switch on, we will have an array of festive stalls, with a mixture of charity, food, drink and an opportunity to get started on your Christmas shopping. Prices range from children’s pocket money items to something more deserving to be wrapped up and placed under the tree!
The fairground is back and it wouldn’t be The Christmas Lights Switch On without The City of Leeds Pipe Band playing us out and closing the event at 8pm.
Who’s turning the lights on?
Joining us straight from filming, ITV weatherman, Jon Mitchell will start the countdown this year. We’re hoping that he’s ordered a dry evening for the festivities!
