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.
