The Westwood Cross Christmas lights switch on is back.
To mark the start of the Christmas season, the shopping centre will host its annual lights switch-on with event partner Academy FM on Friday, November 18 – and is promising some very special guests.
The free event will include a festive procession, giveaways, plus a line up of tribute act performances and a special guest appearance from 90’s boyband East 17, performing some of their famous hits including Christmas classic, Stay Another Day.
The festivities will kick off at 3:30pm with a Christmas procession. Visitors can head down to the centre early to meet Father Christmas and get their hands on a variety of giveaways, including a special goody bag containing a surprise £50 voucher!
Francesca Donovan, Centre Manager at Westwood Cross, said: “We are incredibly excited about this year’s Christmas light switch on. Every year we look forward to celebrating Christmas with the community, and we’ve welcomed some brilliant acts over the years.
“2022 is set to be bigger and better than ever before, offering a magical festive event with incredible entertainment acts, free for everyone to enjoy!”
Westwood Cross will be celebrating the beginning of the festive season from 3:30pm-6.30pm on Friday, November 18, with Father Christmas set to switch on the lights at 6pm.
