Flemingate’s Christmas lights switch-on promises to be bigger and better than last year!

The exciting event takes place on Friday, November, 23, and will see a host of entertainment, followed by the light switch-on and a dazzling firework finale.

Visitors can enjoy festive mulled wine and roaring log fires in cosy tipi bar, Bartipi, which returns to Flemingate for a second year.

The evening of family entertainment will also see a return of the Remarkable Rock Choir, who are guaranteed to get the crowds dancing and singing along to festive rock classics.

An amazing ‘Greatest Showman’ tribute act will perform songs from the film and the talented cast from Parkway cinema’s panto will entertain the crowds with songs from this year’s pantomime ‘Jack and the Bean Stalk’.

Jo Bridgeman, Flemingate’s Marketing and Events Manager, said: “Last year’s Christmas lights switch-on was incredibly popular with thousands turning out to enjoy the event and fireworks.

“This year’s event will be bigger and better with more lights, more fireworks and Father Christmas will flick the switch and turn on the beautiful lights.

“Our shops are also opening late, so visitors can make a start on their Christmas shopping too.

“We’re very excited about it!”

East Riding College will be open for drinks, treats and activities. Travel shop New Horizons Travel will also be open late to take your Christmas Market and Lapland bookings.

Beverley FM will host the event with TV and radio presenter, Adam Smith, the master of ceremonies.

The Flemingate Christmas lights switch-on event begins at 5pm and is due to end at 8pm.

Late night shopping is until 9pm and Flemingate’s bars and restaurants are open as normal. Restaurants will also be offering ‘grab and go’ food from stalls outside their premises.
