Love Grays Christmas Lights Switch On 2019

Date of Event - 23-Nov-2019 to 23-Nov-2019

location - High Street, Grays, Thurrock

 

🎄 It’s that time of year again folks, our annual Christmas Lights Switch On event is nearly here! 🎄

We’ve been tucked away planning this year’s festivities for a little while, working with our elves in the community to find local acts and volunteers to help create decorations for the stage.

This event is proudly sponsored by

Riverside Community Big Local - Brayley Mazda - Nwes - Church of His Presence

 

So what can you expect this year?

Of course we have the main stage right on the high street, presented by BBC Essex and featuring live vocal and dance performances, along with the cast of this year’s panto at Thameside Theatre, Dick Whittington!

Christmas MarketTudor Markets will be breaking out the festoon lighting and garlands for you, setting the scene for some quality Christmas munch on the market (drooling emoji) as well as the opportunity to pick up some cheeky presents 🎁 

Want to trade at our Christmas market on Saturday 23 November?
Contact Tudor Markets Ltd to get booked in today!

As the walkabout entertainment was so popular last year we have brought them back, but this time the costumes have been designed and created by local artists – keep your eyes out for one of our 5 stilt walkers, you won’t miss them!

Quest Music Services will also be at this year’s event hosting an alternative music area near Morrisons.

Children can meet Santa himself at his grotto in Grays Shopping Centre again this year, with the opportunity to take home a photo🎅 


Of course we have our grand finale, with more snow foam than you can shake a stick at! Join us on the the main stage at 5:55 for the big switch on moment!

Keep your eyes peeled for more information coming soon.
