Great Yarmouth Christmas Lights Switch-On

Wednesday 27th November 2013

Join His Worship the Mayor of Great Yarmouth and special guests for an evening of live music, entertainment and roof top fireworks to celebrate the lighting up of the Christmas tree and the town’s festive illuminations in the Market Square. 
The entertainment begins at 6.00pm 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 Rob and Chrissie take to the stage to introduce His Worship The Mayor of Great Yarmouth, Cllr John Burroughs.

The Mayor and his guests will arrive shortly before 7.00pm to switch on the lights and set off the rooftop firework display. The entertainment then continues with even more live music, donkey reindeer rides and the Heart Angels getting everyone in a Christmas mood, with most town centre shops staying open until 8.30pm.
Free parking is available in all Borough Council town centre car parks from 4.00pm everyday (except Market Place) and Sainsbury’s car park from 3.00pm on the late night shopping evenings.
