Newports' Christmas Light Switch On - Friday 30th November - Tree of Light form available on our Christmas Events Page

Join in the excitement of the countdown to Christmas, when Newport gets its magic festive feel with the official switch on of the NEW decorative lights throughout the town on Friday 30th November 2018.

Having listened to feedback from Newport residents, we have decided to have Christmas themed entertainment on the stage, which is based at the Butter Cross, outside St Nicholas Church, High Street Newport.

This year we are aiming to provide a local community and family feel event with an opportunity for local schools and community groups to showcase their talents to Newport’s residents.

The Community performance alongside Nova FM will be providing live entertainment on The Buttercross from 4pm leading up to switch on.

A procession including Father Christmas will travel in a horse drawn carriage from the Guildhall to St Nicholas Church at 5.45pm. The switch on of the lights will take place at around 6:00pm and will be switched on by the overall Christmas Card Competition winner. This will be followed by a festive sing-a-long in the church accompanied by the Salvation Army.
