Christmas Lights Switch-On 2022
November 17th will again see Stone Town Council organising and staging the annual switch-on of the town’s Christmas lights.
The event opens at 5pm, with Samantha Lloyd as compere for the evening. There will be a range of entertainment leading up to the switch-on, including Rooftop Studios and the Stone combined schools choir, which is always a highlight of the evening. 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 Jonathan Powell, and of course, Father Christmas. They will be joined by the winners of the Mayor’s Christmas Card competition. If you’ve been before, you’ll know what to expect. It’s the biggest event to take place in Stone High Street, so make sure you get into town early to claim a good spot.
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 this year we have had the biggest response from the school choirs who will sing to the town, there will be
smiling faces everywhere I look.”
“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.”
