Witney Christmas Lights - 2008

Friday 28th November - In The Market Square, Witney from 4.30pm.

We are delighted that our MP, David Cameron, will once again be performing the ceremonial Switch On - ably supported by Mark Wells, (King Edmund of the recent film, "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe") - in the Market Square at 7pm.

The event will be kicking off at 4.30pm where Father Christmas's reindeer will be situated underneath the Town Hall canopy for children to pet and be ready to take children's letters to Father Christmas. In addition children's bouncy castles will be located in the Market Square and Langdale Hall to keep the little ones entertained. For the hungry there will be a huge Pig Roast from the Witney Rotary Club from 5.00pm until the last bite of crackling has disappeared!

The evening's entertainment will start with the Witney Town Band playing some traditional Christmas Carols as well as a local children's choir. At the same time the Corn Exchange will play host to a Christmas Fayre where there will be various charity stalls, Father Christmas, the Winter Princess and refreshments will be served.

The Langdale Hall will play host to The Witney Model and Collectors' Club display. At 7pm we then warmly welcome the Caledonian Bag Pipers to really get the night going! When the stage performances finish, events will continue in the Corn Exchange and the Market Square, and there will even be a 'Bucking Reindeer'.
