Celebrate the start of Christmas in Guildford with the town’s official lights switch-on this month.


Surrey-born actress, dancer and entertainer Bonnie Langford – star of the Jack and the Beanstalk panto at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre – will join Mayor of Guildford, Cllr Terence Patrick, and 96.4 Eagle radio's Peter Gordon on the Guildhall balcony to light up the town at 7pm on Thursday 24 November.


Organised by Guildford Borough Council and Guildford Town Centre Management Group, this year’s celebrations will also mark the start of late night shopping which will run every Thursday evening until Christmas Eve.


The build-up to the big switch-on will start from 4.30pm with a host of traditional Christmas activities and events; including a Christmas craft market throughout the day, a balcony show and mascots parade from 6pm, Newfoundland dogs pulling Christmas sleighs, visits from Father Christmas, Christmas face painting, and a spectacular firework finale sponsored by White Lion Walk shopping centre.


See you there!
