The Big King’s Lynn’s Christmas lights switch-on will be an afternoon of festive fun from 12noon to 4:30pm on Sunday 20 November.

The Big Switch-on begins at noon, with street entertainers performing around the town centre.

Also strolling around the town will be the festive Fairy Tale Prince and Princesses. They’re back by popular demand after their phenomenal success at last year’s switch-on.

Youngsters shouldn’t forget to pay a visit to Father Christmas in his grotto on New Conduit Street in the Vancouver Quarter.

Mums, dads and grandparents can come and meet the afternoon’s special guest, Paul Barber: ‘Denzil’ in the beloved BBC comedy ‘Only Fools and Horses’. Paul also appeared in the hit comedy film ‘The Full Monty’.

From 2pm the Tuesday Market Place will be abuzz with live entertainment as the main stage opens. KLFM’s Simon Rowe, Charles Dennett and Ross Garrigan will host a selection of special guests and live entertainment, including some top local bands.
There will also be funfair rides for the little ones, as part of this afternoon of fun for all the family.

From 4pm the Prince and Princesses and Father Christmas will join Si, Charles and Ross on the Tuesday Market Place stage.

Cinderella and the Ugly Sisters, stars of Cinderella, this year’s pantomime at the Alive Corn Exchange, will also be on stage, after saying hello in the town centre to get everyone truly in the Christmas spirit.

The countdown will begin, and shortly after 4pm, the switch-on will be done by the Mayor, Cllr David Whitby, and the Mayoress, Mrs Linda Whitby.

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