Christmas Lights BIG Switch-on weekend 2016 Photo Gallery & video
Mon 23 January 2017


Last year’s Christmas lights BIG switch on was even bigger and better than ever before! The weekend event saw a whole host free activities, launching Swindon’s Enchanted Christmas.

Thousands descended into the town centre to watch the lights switch-on. X Factor winner Ben Haenow warmed up crowds by performing one of his hits along with performances from Phoebe Maddison, Swindon Dance Urban Youth Academy and the Rock Choir.

Wyvern Theatre panto star Ryan Thomas did the honours of pressing the button and illuminating the town centre with glistening festive lights before an amazing firework display that lit up the skies. 

The switch-on was part of a weekend of free activities and entertainment across the town centre as children and grown-ups were entertained by dancing elves, roller skating pixies and Mr and Mrs Claus on stilts.

On Sunday, the main stage at Wharf Green was 'LIVE' again with a whole host of performances from Boogie Storm, local bands/singers and x Factor star Jay James. The town centre's streets were glowing from lanterns as our Festival of Light weaved its way from Regents Circus to Canal Walk. Youngsters were able to take part in the procession following a lantern making session held at the library.
