Christmas Lights Switch-On 2023
Thursday 23rd November will see Stone Town Council staging the annual switch-on of the town’s Christmas lights.
The event opens at 5pm, with Kath Stanway as compere for the evening. There will be a range of entertainment leading up to the switch-on, including a performance from Prestige Performance Academy at 5.30pm, the Stone combined schools choir at 6.00pm, followed by Stone Revellers at 6.30pm.
At 7:00pm we will get to the main event – the turning on of the lights! This year the lights will be switched on by the Town Mayor, Councillor Jim Davies, and of course, Father Christmas. They will be joined by the winners of the Mayor’s Christmas Card competition.
The ever-popular Warwick’s Funfair will be set up in the Market Square and down the High Street, and there will be food stalls, trade stalls, and charity stalls with all manner of things to buy and win.
Councillor Jill Hood, Chairman of the Council’s Tourism and Town Promotion Sub-Committee, said: “I always look forward to this event, when the High Street is lit up with Christmas trees and the school choirs sing to the town.”
“We will again be putting on a fantastic show, with a full programme of entertainment and even Santa himself putting in an appearance. This is a hugely popular event for all age groups, and I hope you will join us on the evening to welcome the Christmas season to Stone.”
