With Christmas just around the corner, the town is already preparing for the festive season with hours being spent on transforming the town in to a sparkling wonder.
Nantwich Christmas lights switch on, full of festive cheer, always kicks off the celebrations and is a wonderful part of the seasonal calendar.
The event, taking place on Friday 19th November will include an array of entertainment on the square from 3pm.
The Cat Radio will host the event and there will be performances from local singer Megan Lee and the fantastic Electromantics.
We are delighted to be welcoming back our Churchyardside Market, which will be selling a selection of gifts, treats and food from noon onwards.
The event will conclude with a guest appearance from Father Christmas, before the lights switch on around 7.30pm.
Turning on the lights this year will be the Mayor of Nantwich Councillor Stuart Bostock.
Nantwich Christmas Lights Switch On Statement
Friday 19th November welcomes the beginning of the festive period with the switch on of the Christmas Lights around town.
Each year the event comes to a finale with the switch on of the lights and a firework display. Much to our disappointment, we have just discovered that changes have been made in law relating to the release of fireworks, therefore not allowing us to set them off from the top of the Civic Hall as we have done in past years.
We have reviewed the event, but due to the way our beautiful town has been built there are no open areas in which we could let the fireworks off, but still be seen properly from the Town Square where the rest of the event takes place.
Therefore, unfortunately, this year there will not be any fireworks. However, we are still expecting this to be a fantastic event. We have plenty of entertainment on offer including music from local singer Megan Lee and a great set from Electromantics, Churchyardside will be packed with market stalls and of course you will get to see the stunning Christmas lights turned on.
