This year the Mayor of Nantwich, Councillor Arthur Moran is launching a search for worthy guests of honour to turn on Nantwich’s Christmas lights.

The festive season may seem quite a long way off, but planning for the annual event is almost complete.

Over the years there has been various line-ups to turn on the lights including celebrities. However, this year the Mayor felt the town’s own younger VIPs should get a chance to turn on the lights.

Do you know any worthy candidates? Email your nominations to or drop them off at Nantwich Civic Hall.  Nominations should include your name, address, contact number, the person you wish to nominate and why they deserve to turn on the town’s Christmas lights.

Nantwich Christmas Lights Switch On, full of festive cheer, always kicks off the celebrations and is a wonderful part of the seasonal calendar.

This year the event will take place on Friday 15th November and will include a mini-market selling a selection of gifts, treats and food from 12noon, and an array of entertainment, including a set from UK Bjorn, on the square from 4pm.

Proceedings will conclude with a guest appearance from Father Christmas, before the lights switch on and spectacular firework display from Blitz Fireworks around 7pm.
