Hundreds of people turned out to enjoy the Christmas light switch on in Ramsgate today (November 26).

Attractions throughout the day included the land train running a route through the town, a human snowglobe, the handmade market and, of course, Father Christmas at the Arts in Ramsgate shop.

Entertainment was hosted by Ralph “Mr Ramsgate” Hoult and included singers and the cast of the Granville Theatre panto, Jack and the Beanstalk.

Mayor and mayoress Trevor and Mandy Shonk were also on stage for the switch on.

The day also included a parade with families showing the lanterns made earlier at AiR.
