Lancaster BID Christmas Lights Switch On 2018

Head to Lancaster for the annual Lancaster BID Christmas Lights Switch On. With the event growing each year, expect a full day of festive fun and entertainment in the city centre! This year the popular annual event will be bigger and better than ever with two Santa runs, two stages, two main headliners and even an ice rink! But fear not switch on fans, the day will still contain all the usual family fun, celebrities and of course Santa Claus himself!

The highlight of the day’s event will be The Main Stage show in Market Square from 2.30pm until 6pm. This year promises to have an amazing line up. The X Factor winner Ben Haenow will headline the event. Ben won the 11th series of The X Factor in 2014 and released his debut single ‘Something I Need’ which went on to become Christmas number one. Joining Ben will be the BAFTA-nominated Children’s TV presenter Andy Day, best known for his work on CBeebies with shows like Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures and Andy’s Prehistoric Adventures.

Other amazing artists making an appearance on the day include The Greatest Showman Show, Zoe Unsworth, Emilia formerly of Tiger Heart and Ricky Birchall from the Birchall Brothers. There will also be performances from Stagecoach Theatre School, Samba Espirito drumming band and The Dukes Theatre cast of Peter Pan.

An event not to be missed!
