PRESS RELEASE – Christmas Lights Switch On 2021
Christmas Lights Switch-On 2021
November 25th will again see Stone Town Council organising and staging the annual switch-on of the town’s Christmas lights. The focus this year will again be on local young people, who will provide most of the entertainment and help to turn on the lights.
The event opens at 5pm, compered by Samantha Lloyd, with the usual range of entertainment leading up to the main event – the turning on of the lights at 7pm.
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 love this time of year when the town is lit up with Christmas trees and lights. Our Christmas light switch-on event is hugely popular and once again we will be putting on a fantastic show with Father Christmas turning up for the children and a full programme of performances on the stage.”
“There’s something for every age group to enjoy and the Christmas season will be well and truly welcomed by our town.”
“If you can’t make it, though, the Council will again be producing a virtual switch-on video, and the switch-on itself will be broadcast live by A Little Bit of Stone”
