Swindon Town Centre BIG Christmas Lights Switch-on

One of Swindon's biggest and most popular events, the annual Swindon Town Centre Christmas Lights Switch-on is the highlight of the local festive calendar.

Part of inSwindon BID's free ‘Festival of Lights, the festival kicks off with the annual light switch on and will be headlined by the most popular British urban artist of this generation - Tinchy Stryder.

Throughout the day, visitors and families can enjoy free entertainment including Christmas bouncing elves all the way from the North Pole and the mesmerising Glo Hula Hooping dancer, as well as the much-loved Santa’s Grotto and the new Santa’s Post Office at The Brunel Shopping Centre.

The official main stage goes live from 5.00pm in Wharf Green, featuring local performers including The Voice Kids finalist 2018 Lilia Slattery, Swindon’s ‘Tap Attack’ from Britain's Got Talent 2018, Phoebe Maddison from The Voice Kids 2018, Swindon’s Got Talent winner, Nathaniel Parker and Swindon Dance.

Heart Breakfast’s Ben and Mel will once again host the main event, joined by children’s host ‘Jack Frost’ who will be sure to bring festive fun and mayhem to the main stage.

At 6.00pm a dramatic firework finale is planned to light up the sky above the town centre.
