Nantwich Christmas lights switch on, full of festive cheer, always kicks off the celebrations and is a wonderful part of the seasonal calendar.

The event, taking place on Friday 19th November will include an array of entertainment on the square from 4pm. 

This year we are delighted to welcome The Cat Radio to host the event and there will be performances from local singer Megan Lee and popular group Electromantics.

Following the success of the Christmas Market Stalls, they too will return along Churchyardside from 12 noon onwards, and will be selling a selection of gifts, treats and food.

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

Turning on the lights this year will be the Mayor of Nantwich Councillor Stuart Bostock, supported by the sponsors of the event Applewood Independent, Alpha Omega Security and McCarthy Stone.
