The ‘Christmas Lights Festival’ kicks off from 12noon, with an exciting array of mouth-watering Food Trucks, festive games, children’s rides & entertainment, 25+ Christmas Gift & Charity Stalls lining the town centre streets. PLUS, there’ll be meet & greet sessions with Christmas grouch, The Grinch at 12noon, 1.30pm, 3pm & 4.30pm, a GIANT Snow Globe, AND an appearance from a certain Mr. Father Christmas.
With TWO Stages running throughout the day, there’ll be entertainment on both the High Street & Frogmoor, featuring live performances from over 15 different groups! The Blend Choir, Castle Street Dancers, Rock Choir, Stagecoach, All Saints Church Carol Singers, Orpheus Choir, Glee Choir & Dew Dance will be showing off some seasonal turns, as well as Marsh Infant & Nursery School and Downley School Choir taking a turn on the High Street Stage.
The ‘Switch On Ceremony’ will take at 5.15pm on the Frogmoor Stage – generously sponsored by Dandara Living – with Suzanne Shaw, leading lady from The Swan’s very own ‘Beauty & The Beast’ pantomime pressing the button, alongside High Wycombe’s esteemed Mayor Cllr Paul Turner.
With great festive fanfare & Christmas cheer, the town’s lights will officially be lit, and the Frogmoor Stage will be brought to a close by The Blend Choir. But the fun won’t be over just yet, there’ll still be plenty of food, festive fun & Christmas goodies to be enjoyed, until the event officially closes at 6pm.
