‘TIS THE SEASON to be jolly! Yes – it’s that time of year already! The popular ‘Switch On’ celebration of the town lights takes place in Hedon Market Place on Friday 26th November, 2010.
The lights will be switched on by Hedon Town Mayor, Brenda Goldspink, at 6:30pm, but the fun really starts at 6:00pm with stalls, children’s rides and KCFM 99.8 conducting a live broadcast. Father Christmas will be setting up a temporary lodge in the Town Hall whilst his sleigh will be looked after by the Holderness Lions. Some of the local shops are expected to be open and their Christmas window displays are usually a real attractive feature of the event.
This is always a popular night in the town. The Market Place Christmas Tree, the focus of traditional carol singing on the night, will be the largest of nearly 100 other trees around the town centre.
The town centre roads will be closed for the night from 5:00pm – 9:30pm and EYMS bus services will be diverted accordingly.
