The St. Anne’s Christmas Lights Switch On 20th November 2021.
The St. Anne’s Christmas Lights Switch On event returns to the town centre on the 20th November 2021.
The Town Council received an incredible amount of positive feedback about our virtual switch event in 2020. For 2021 we are back LIVE in person in St. Anne’s on the Sea Town Centre.
The event is hosted by Emma-Louise Jackson.
Between 12 noon and 2pm Christmas music will be played. Performances begin at 2pm and culminate in the dressed tree and Christmas Lights Switch On at 5.30pm.
Performers for this year include Paul Dobie, Peter Anthony, Across the Boards and Steven Canavan.
If it’s cold enough you may see Elsa, Anya and Olaf from Frozen singing and dancing in the square.
At the end of the event a small procession will walk from the stage to the amphitheatre to conduct the crib blessing.
You might be asking, where is Santa? Well this year, for the first time, he will be visiting a few of our other shopping areas. Pop down to Alexandria Drive at 11.30am, Whalley Place at 12.30pm, Headroomgate Road at 1.30pm or St. Alban’s Road at 2.30pm to meet the great man. Santa will of course be on stage in the Town Centre at 5.30pm for the lights switch on.
