King’s Lynn’s Christmas lights switch-on is an afternoon of festive fun from 12noon to 4:30pm on Sunday 22 November.

There will be live music, and street performances around the town, before the countdown to the switch-on begins in the Tuesday Market Place.

Strolling around the town will be the Fairy Tale Princes and Princesses. They are returning to King’s Lynn after they were part of the incredibly popular Fairy Tales and Legends event held in the town this summer.

Father and Mother Christmas will be appearing in a winter wonderland in Baxter’s Plain in the Vancouver Quarter, and Covent Garden street entertainers, and a host of other characters will be around the town.

From 2pm the Tuesday Market Place will be abuzz with live entertainment as the main stage opens. KLFM’s Simon Rowe, Charles Dennett and Christopher Dean will host a selection of special guests and live entertainment; including The B-Sides, Addison’s Uncle, and the winners of Battle of the Acoustic Bands ‘Pirate Joe’ and ‘Sacred Nations’.

From 4pm the Princes and Princesses and Mother and Father Christmas will join Si, Charles and Chris on the Tuesday Market Place stage. Dame Doubletop and Friar Tuck, stars of The Adventures of Robin Hood, this year’s pantomime at the Alive Corn Exchange, will also be on stage. The countdown will begin, and at 4:30pm, the switch-on will be done by the Deputy Mayor, Cllr David Whitby, and the Deputy Mayoress, Mrs Linda Whitby, and a special VIP.

Cllr David Pope, Cabinet Member for ICT, Leisure and Public Space, said: “The big switch-on promises to be bigger and better this year, with fun for all the family. I hope that holding the switch-on on a Sunday will encourage lots of people to join us to mark the start of the festive season and support our town centre.”

The switch-on event is organised by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk and the Vancouver Quarter Shopping Centre.
