WHEN AND WHERE?
Sheffield's Christmas lights will officially be switched on at 5.30m on Sunday, November 19, at the Peace Gardens.
WILL THERE BE ANY PRE SWITCH-ON ENTERTAINMENT?
The event itself will run throughout the town centre from 2pm to 6pm. Absolutely everything will be there to get you in the mood for the season: choir singing, Santa’s Grotto, a Christmas market, fairground rides, children’s characters and entertainment from the Sheffield Theatres Panto Cast.
The Moor Sheffield are also hosting their own ‘Christmas Party’, running from 12:30pm to 4:30pm.
Hosted by Yellow Bus Events, The Moor will be filled with reindeer, snow machines, a live nativity and face painting for the children (and also the occasional big kid). Santa Claus and a ‘giant walkabout snowman’ will be there for a special appearance, making sure every wish list gets to the North Pole in time.
