Christmas lights switch on

What better way to get into the festive spirit? Reading town Centre will be lit up to celebrate the start of the Christmas season – join in the festivities this Thursday 16 November! 

Broad Street Mall will be holding their annual Christmas lights switch-on event with celebrations starting from 4pm with special celebrity guests, Jack and Joel from X Factor, coming along to switch on the lights! More info here

But the fun doesn’t stop there - the Oracle will be putting on a similar extravaganza, the River of Light, which will begin at 5pm. There will be a performance on the Riverside by the Rock Choir followed by a spectacular light display along the river – lights will turn on at 6pm.  More info here

Make sure you arrive in plenty of time so you don’t miss any of the displays!
