Great Yarmouth Event Information

Christmas Light Switch-On

Friday 20th November 2015

Celebrate the arrival of Santa here in Great Yarmouth live on stage at the Big Switch On.

With live music and entertainment, the Big Switch On gets the festive season off to a flying start for an evening of fun with ice jugglers, traditional carols from Great Yarmouth Brass and of course the turning on of Great Yarmouth's Christmas Tree and town’s festive illuminations in the market place.

The entertainment begins at 6pm with live music from top local singers on the Heart FM soundstage to warm up the crowd with some upbeat Christmas tunes before Heart FM’s breakfast show presenters Dave and Heidi take to the stage to introduce the Mayor and special guest Father Christmas to switch on the lights at 7.00pm, followed by a rooftop firework display and more live music with most of the town centre shops staying open until 8.30pm.

The lights will be switched on at 7pm and will be followed by a rooftop firework display and live music with shops and Christmas Fayre stalls staying open late.
