Published on Tuesday, 12th November 2019

"We are looking forward to the Christmas lights switch-on events in our Borough, they are always very popular and provide great entertainment for the whole family."

The Borough’s Christmas lights switch-on events will be better than ever this year with additional food and craft stalls from CJ Events as well as a brand new Christmas food and gift fair hosted by Pick ‘n’ Mix Events!

As well as the additional food and gift stalls there will be live music, fireworks, charity stalls and performances by local dance and theatre groups and each event will feature Anker Radio, Elf on Stilts and Billy Bates funfair.

The Nuneaton & Bedworth Town Crier will be in attendance to perform the countdown at each event, plus, joining the Mayor to switch on the lights will be non-other than Santa himself!

Jonathan White, NBBC Town Centres and Marketing Manager said:
