Loughborough's Christmas lights were switched-on in front of thousands of people on Sunday November 26, 2023.

The event, organised by Charnwood Borough Council, was an afternoon of fun with a variety of market stalls, food and drink stalls, stage entertainment and children’s fairground rides.

The Christmas lights were then switched-on at 5pm by Light up Loughborough winner, Amellia Baker.
