Christmas Lights Switch On

Kick off the festive season in style with the Christmas Lights switch on in South Shields!

Special guests Reggie ‘N’ Bollie will be joining The Mayor of South Tyneside to switch on the festive lights before giving a special performance.

The festive entertainment will also include music from singers

Jenn Cherene and Channy, stilt walkers, mix and mingle festive characters, as well as an appearance from Dame Bella, Arbuthnot and Puddle from this year’s Customs House panto, The Lambton Worm.

So put the date in your diary as this is always a fantastic event, with music, entertainment and lots of fun. It’ll certainly get you in the Christmas spirit!

New this year is the Winter Lights Night Market, which will take place 3 – 8pm in South Shields Market Place. There’ll be lots of handmade gifts, unique creations, festive food and artisan treats!

The event is organised by South Tyneside Council. With thanks to our media partner BBC Newcastle and our sponsors Colmans Seafood Temple.
