Newark Christmas Lights Switch On

Submitted on 23 November 2021 by Helen Crossland

It will open at 11.00am and close with the 'Switch On' at 4.45pm.

In order to minimize the large crowds watching the main stage, the live music and entertainment will take place from two stages, at either end of the Market Place.  The fairground rides have been limited to children's rides and there will be no firework display at the end.  The entertainment provided throughout the day has been boosted with a number of professional street performers to carry out 'walkabouts' around the Market Place.

In addition to the live Switch On, the Town Council has once again commissioned a separate filmed virtual event; this proved to be very popular last year and will once again be broadcast through Facebook:
