THE SWITCH ON of Hedon’s Christmas Lights tomorrow (Fri 26th Nov 2010) is always a popular event with its stalls, rides, hot-chesnuts, carol singing and other attractions.
However this year, the seasonal weather – with the possibility of snow – should add a really festive atmosphere to the occasion. The secret is to bring lots of warm clothing, scarves, hats and gloves, but also take advantage of the many indoor attractions available as well as those outdoor. You can visit Alexandra Hall where warm and other refreshments will be available; you can also visit the warm interiors of the local pubs and the shops that will be open.
An interesting attraction on the evening will be at the Game People Shop in George Street. Mike Pearce says the shop will be opening late and holding a demonstration of the Kinect for the Xbox 360. He invites people to come and have a look at this amazing brand-new gaming technology!
Those travelling by car should note that parking is available at the Iveson Close Car Park, Johnsons Corner Car Park, Market Hill and surrounding on-street parking.
