The fun starts at 12 noon on Saturday, November 24 with a free screening of The Greatest Showman on the Signal 107 stage, Harry Jones Funfair, a festive market on Dudley Street, real reindeer and much more. Get set for a full afternoon of entertainment that you won't want to miss, with the lights switch on as the finale.  Stars from the Grand Theatre pantomime Sleeping Beauty, Debbie McGee, Richard Cadell & Sooty will join the Mayor of Wolverhampton, Councillor Phil Page and Father Christmas to switch on the lights at 5pm.

The city centre fun is not the only festive lights celebration, as lights will also be switched on at Wednesfield, Tettenhall, Bilston and Bantock House with Father Christmas, the Mayor of Wolverhampton and entertainment from Signal 107.

All Christmas lights switch-on events are free to attend. 


Please Note: Unfortunately, the decision has been taken to not include a firework display at the city centre light switch-on. This is due to the huge volume of people now attending the event each year making it increasingly difficult to clear pedestrians – mainly shoppers moving between the Mander Centre and Beatties - from the fireworks fallout zone required for health and safety reasons.
