As you know, a few months back we backed and supported a Crowdfunded campaign called “Light up Wednesfield”. This was lead by a community group called Hands On Wednesfield who wanted to make a change to the Christmas lights down Wednesfield high street. Aiming to raise £4000 to make this happen, they turned to the local community to help support this cause and had a terrific response, raising over a thousand pound more than their target.

Therefore, this year’s Wednesfield Christmas light switch event is going to be bigger and better than ever before. Starting at 2pm on Thursday 24th November, you can expect to see acts such as a Flash Mob dance act from Flexus Dance Collective, Fire Breathing, Christmas carols, Rides, Charity Markets and the Rotary Clubs legendary Santa on his sleigh. The main lights switch on is happening at 5pm with Signal 107 and the Mayor Of Wolverhampton.

Also a massive thank you to Simon at Wednesfield magazine for the brilliant advertisements in the Wednesfield magazine and the Wednesfield Christmas Lights Switch on 2016 brochure, which will be given out on the night.
