The date and time of this year’s Christmas lights switch on has been announced
The Christmas countdown is on!
Right, politics aside, let’s do our best to get into the Christmas spirit and what better way to get us all in the mood for some festive merriment than the switching on of the Christmas lights in Sheffield?
This year, the lights switch on event takes place across the city centre on Sunday 17 November from 2pm to 6.30pm with the switch on of the illuminations at 5.30pm from the Peace Gardens stage.
With the Christmas Market officially opening just a few days before on 14 November, there will be plenty to get revellers in the festive swing of things with choirs, Santa’s grotto, carolling, panto, street entertainment, children’s TV and film characters, Christmas craft activities and fairground rides.
Heart Yorkshire presenters will host the stage programme with Christmas music, entertainment and interviews, and the special headline switch on guests will be announced when the big day draws near.
