Arnold will celebrate the switching on of the town’s Christmas lights this year on Friday, November 24.
The Christmas Light Switch On, which has been sponsored by Robert Ellis Estate Agents, will take place from 4pm, outside the AMP building at the former Arnold Market site.
The event will feature performances from local schools and choirs, a lantern parade, street entertainers and even a visit from Santa. A number of local businesses, including several at the AMP building, will also be staying open late throughout the event.
An indoor craft fair will be open next to the event, at Arnold Methodist Church, with stalls selling items such as cards, festive food and gifts.
The Christmas lights will be switched on by the Mayor of Gedling, Councillor Julie Najuk at 6.30pm
Leader of Gedling Borough Council, Councillor John Clarke MBE said: “I’m delighted to announce details of this year’s Arnold Christmas light switch event taking place later this month.
Last year was the first year hosting the event at our new venue outside the AMP building at the former Arnold Market Place, and what a great event that was with an incredible turn out.
I have no doubt that the event this year will be just as popular, and I’d like to invite residents to join us and enjoy this great community event as we kick off the festive season.”
