Kirkham’s Big Christmas Switch On This Saturday Promises a Fun-Packed Family Day

Saturday 27th November will see more than 40 stalls lining Poulton Street and filling the historic Market Square as Kirkham’s Christmas lights are switched on. A wonderful day of festive entertainment will be presented between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.  – with live music from street performers situated around the town – including the Worldwise Samba Drummers performing two sets (between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.) – as well as Father Christmas (between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.), a snow machine, and photo opportunities with cartoon characters The Grinch and The Christmas Elves (between 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.).

Children entertainer Davey Dee will present an hour of fun and laughter beginning at 11.30 a.m. and a festive firework finale will conclude a brilliant day at 6.30 p.m.

Karl Swan, chairman of the Kirkham’s Christmas Lights, said the volunteers behind the event were delighted to be bringing the switch-on back this year. ‘We are so happy to be able to announce Kirkham’s Christmas Switch-On event is back for 2021! It was bitterly disappointing to have to cancel last year’s event after such successful switch-ons in 2018 and 2019, when 2,000 people attended each event. Unlike previous years, which have been about a big party in Market Square, we have decided to incorporate as much of the town centre as we can. Not only will Lancashire Artisan Traders be bringing a number of stalls here, but many of the local shops will also come out onto the high street to join the fun. It’s going to be a real festive celebration. There will be lots for families to enjoy in a safe and secure way before the day is rounded off by a firework finale.’

Poulton Street will be closed throughout the event to help create a safe and secure space for people to browse the wealth of market stalls and enjoy the fun.
