Dartford's Getting Ready For Some Christmas Sparkle

Dartford town centre's getting ready to sparkle and shine at this year's Big Christmas Lights Switch On which takes place on Saturday 18th November.

The Worshipful Mayor of Dartford Councillor Rosanna Currans will be joined on stage by Orchard Theatre ‘Cinderella’ pantomime star Louie Spence, Father Christmas and our colouring competition winner to switch on the lights at 5.15pm.

From 2pm, the build up to the grand finale will see performances from Five After Midnight and appearances from Orchard Theatre pantomime stars, as the countdown to switching on Dartford's Christmas lights begins.

In addition to the acts and entertainment on stage in the High Street, there will be lots of family entertainment and giveaways around the town centre, including a great treasure hunt around the town, with a prize of a family of four ticket to see the Orchard Theatre pantomime ‘Cinderella’ this Christmas.

Councillor Patsy Thurlow, Cabinet Member for Events said, "We can’t wait for this year’s fantastic Christmas Lights Switch On and look forward to seeing everyone gather in the High Street for the festivities. The Christmas Lights are a brilliant way to see in the festive season and every year there are spectacular scenes as the town is covered with paper snow! We hope you can join us for what promises to be another wonderful event.”
