An absolute must for the children and the Christmas loving adults too! The big switch on is always exciting and it splits into three:
Christmas Lights at Lincoln St Marks Shopping Centre
Music, Entertainment and fun from 4:45pm with the big switch on at (drum roll.....) 6:30pm. Hosting is LincsFMs very own John Marshall and for the Swtich On you'll see on stage the cast of Lincoln's Christmas Panto from The Drill Hall, who this year are performing Cinderella (Ohhh yes they are...).
Christmas Lights on Lincoln High St
Also starting at 4:45pm with a procession including the mayor at 6:40pm and the big switch on at 7:10pm, so for the very keen, you can see both if you hurry! The high street entertainment is hosted by BBC Radio Lincolnshire and the switch on itself is hosted by none other than the lovely Melinda Messenger, who is starring in this years New Theatre Royal panto of Robin Hood.
Christmas Lights in Lincoln's Waterside Shopping Centre
Dancing, Singing and performances/entertainment will also be held in Lincoln's Waterside Shopping centre from 6pm. There will be an opportunity to meet Melinda Messenger (autographs and photos) too!
One of the oldest Christmas Markets as well as one of the biggest - with over 250 stalls spread across the historic quarter of Lincoln, through the Castle into Castle Square in front of Lincoln's Cathedral and into the medieval Bishops Palace.
