Please be advised that Newport Town Council has applied to Telford & Wrekin Council Highways department for a road closure for much of the High Street on Friday 25th November 2022, which has been granted.
The road closure allows for the Christmas Light Switch-on event.
St Mary’s Street – 11.00hrs until 22:00hrs
High Street – 16.00hrs until 22:00hrs
Lower Bar Mini round about to include Lower Bar, & High Street to Wellington Road Junction.
Stafford Street from the carpark entrance to mini roundabout on High Street.
The road closures will allow for the Christmas Market on St. Mary’s Street and safe passage of the civic procession led by the Salvation Army Band and followed by “vehicle’s” carrying the Mayor and the winner of the competition to switch on the lights. This will leave the Guildhall at around 5.50pm and head to the paved area of central square, where the countdown and switch on will take place at around 6.00pm.
The setting up of appropriate staging and infrastructure will begin during the morning of 25th November and the pre-switch on entertainment provided by Nova FM will start at approximately 4.30pm.
Should you have any comments we ask that you contact a member of staff at the Guildhall, or you can make comments to Telford & Wrekin Council’s highways department (tel. no: 01952 384000).
