The Westwood Cross Christmas light switch on will take place on Monday, November 22.

At 4.30pm, the festivities will kick off with a procession throughout the centre, led by Father Christmas.

During the procession, visitors will see the new play park, the Little Bears’ Cove which is near Primark, and find a walk-through bauble for some Christmas selfies!

There will also be carol singing, a 12 metre-high interactive tree, a brass band and lots more,

At the end of the procession, Santa will switch on the Christmas lights with help from everyone in the crowd, and there will be a countdown to reveal this year’s new illuminations.

Fifty lucky winners will be treated to an intimate performance of classic pop hits by S Club Allstars, which includes Bradley and Tina from S Club 7 and Stacey from S Club Juniors.

The event runs from 4,40pm to 7pm.
