Westwood Cross will hold its Christmas light switch-on event on November 17.
The annual celebration will be hosted by KMFM with guest acts to be announced soon.
Last year’s event had appearances from Gogglebox star Sandi Bogle, performances from X Factor finalists and a surprise visit from the show’s winner, Matt Terry.
Centre manager Francesca Donovan said: “We will be announcing this year’s special guests very soon and can’t wait to kick off this year’s festive season!
“Our annual Christmas lights switch on always attracts thousands of visitors from across Thanet. It is a great opportunity to get a head-start on the Christmas shopping, with stores open until 7.30pm weekdays and free parking you can relax and soak up the atmosphere.”
Visitors will be able to soak up the festive atmosphere and take part in the centre’s ‘name the reindeer’ competition, with an opportunity to win a stocking full of presents. Children can also write post letters to Father Christmas, which will be collected at the Guest Services kiosk near Debenhams.
