Christmas cheer is heading to Charnwood with a host of events in the borough. This year's festivities will officially kick-off with the Christmas lights switch on, Sunday November 25, in Loughborough Market place from 1-5pm.
We are pleased that Capital FM will be returning to host the event for the second time, after their superb debut at last year's event. There will also be live competitions and music videos on the big screen.
The team from Capital will be joined by the cast of this year's pantomime, Beauty and the Beast, as well as entertainment from Loughborough Students' Union Sing, St Botolph's School Choir, Bright Lights Theatre School and Loughborough Schools Foundation Sax Ensemble along with other local stars.
During the day there will be a charity market and a continental market as well as arts and crafts, fairground rides and a Santa's grotto in Carillon Court.
Switch on at 5.00pm.
