    Christmas Lights Switch On


    0 Not allowed!
    Not long to go now, ours in Lyme are next Thursday 12th, by none other than local celebrity Oliver Letwin.



    Looking for the date for Brighton lights switch on and it looks like another spectacular affair...


    Brighton Christmas Lights Switched On - 19th November
    Thursday 13th November sees the streets of Brighton’s shopping district alight with festive colour as the 2015 Christmas lights are turned on with a host of festive family fun to get everybody in the Christmas spirit. The event officially kicks of the start to Brighton’s Christmas Season, with celebrities Boy George and Antony Cotton doing the honours. There will also be a raffle for anyone turning up with prizes ranging from Premier League football tickets, to restaurant vouchers and even a trip to see Santa in his grotto! There will also be live music courtesy of Juice FM and an opportunity to get photos with Santa, Boy and Antony. The event starts at 6:30 and kicks off the Christmas Season for Brighton and Hove.

      Announced in the local rag today ours are taking place on Thursday 14th November with prominent feminist Germaine Greer doing the honours and supported by the onthemarket.com choir singing Christmas carols and their crowd pleasing radio and TV jingle. Should be an absolute hoot.

      Thursday November 14th for us as well.
      Also announced the date for the 2020 switch on will be Thursday November 12th.
      Sadly we have no news on which celebrity will be pressing the button.
      The excitement is really starting to build up down here and I fully expect to see some council houses fully lit up any day now.

      It's Brian Conley and Rusty Lee in Plymouth this year.

      Can't help but think this is a case of premature cogitation although I totally get the unbridled levels of anticipation re which soap star will be selected to throw the switch!

      Ahhh... the warm glow of the Christmas lights blending festively with the alien landing level brightness of the 77" 4K Ultra HD TV above the fireplace, casting a cheery light on the feckless faces gathered round....

      Oh my days, I love Rusty Lee, especially her laugh,what a fantastic start to winterval that will be.
      "It's a puppet" as the legend Conley presses the button, can't wait for that either.
      Bet you all wish you lived down here now.

      In Cambridge, they don’t seem to have quite decided when they’re going to be turning on the lights this year. I’ve seen 14, 15, 17, and 18 November as the advertised date. One thing is consistent though: Jonnie Peacock is the “extra special celebrity” who will be throwing the switch(es), ably assisted by the Fulbourn Primary School choir and the “busker Tom Korni”.

      Can’t wait.

      I’m also looking forward to the switch on in Ely on 29 Nov (assuming the organisers can find the £10,500 extra sponsorship they need before 15 Oct which is apparently the deadline for purchasing all the lights and glitter they need).

      Heard on the grapevine that Hailsham can't afford Alec Scott. Price of fame, I suppose. No consolation when we have Jimmy "It's the way I tell 'em" Cricket doing the honours.
