Christmas Lights Switch On event hopes for bumper crowds

 

Christmas shoppers and those hoping to catch early sight of Santa Claus should make their way to next week’s Our Bury St Edmunds Christmas Lights Switch On Night (Thursday November 14).

 

The town’s annual Christmas Charity Market will see good causes from around the town bring their festive fundraising activities onto Cornhill and the Buttermarket alongside the afternoon of attractions and free entertainment that make up the spectacular evening. Many shops will be opening late too.

 

Some roads will be closed in the town centre following on from Wednesday’s regular market to allow preparations for the event to take place. The entertainment programme starts at 3pm and the lights will be switched on at 7pm by local hero Daniel Challenor from Wagamama who saved a customer’s life earlier this year. Our Bury St Edmunds is making a donation to the East Anglian Air Ambulance on Daniel’s behalf. Activities and entertainment will then continue until around 8pm throughout the town centre including in and around the charity market stalls and on Abbeygate Street and at arc Shopping Centre.
