Santa’s reindeer will be outside the Albert Halls from 2.00pm then ready to set off through the city centre, winding their way through Corn Exchange and down King Street and finishing at Santa’s Christmas home inside The Thistles shopping centre.

This will be followed by a radio roadshow at the foot of King Street with lots of entertainment, music, fun and games and of course the spectactular Lights Switch On at 5pm.

As well as competitions and giveaways there will also be live musical performances from Alix Muir and Little Mix tribute group - Little Fix, to keep all ages entertained up until the big moment of the Lights Switch On at 5pm .
We are delighted to announce we will be joined this year by special guests, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers for our Christmas Lights Switch On! Make sure you don't miss it.
