Switching on the Christmas Lights at Newbury
This ever popular event, attracting a huge number of people into the Town Centre, will kick off at 4pm with musical performances from local singers including Father and Son, the Newbury Rock Choir and back by popular demand, Kate Izzard.
Watership Brass Band and St Nicolas Church Choir will be entertaining the crowds with traditional Christmas carols and welcoming Father Christmas to the stage after the procession which will start at the Methodist Church at around 5:30pm. Our local radio station, The Breeze, Newbury will be hosting the event on the stage, and the winner of their “Search for a Star” competition will be accompanying the Mayor and Mayoress of Newbury on the sleigh and onto the stage ready for the big moment when the lights are switched on.
There will be hot food, sweets and doughnuts available in the Market Place so come along and enjoy the fun and bring the whole family!
