Mark Williams to switch on Bromsgrove’s Christmas lights
Mark Williams (Arthur Weasley) is set to switch on the Christmas lights in Bromsgrove, England, this Saturday, November 22. The actor, who attended North Bromsgrove School, will hit the switch outside the Argos store at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday.
Prior to the countdown and light switch on, there will be a variety of different festive activities for the public to take part in, including a roadshow hosted by BBC Hereford and Worcester radio presenter Malcolm Boyden. The fun will commence at 3:30 p.m., and to get people in the festive spirit, a snow machine will be on hand, along with a special visit from Father Christmas and his elves.
Entertainment will be provided in the form of local singers, students from Chadsgrove School Choir and the Rock Choir. To add to the excitement, the popular Midwinter Fest, which launched last year, will return for this year’s festivities. After the light switch on, St. John’s Church will be hosting crafts, exhibits, scary walks, and a chance for people to climb up the historic church’s tower, which will enable participants to see the town lit up from almost 200 feet in the air.
Councillor Mark Bullivant, whose portfolio covers leisure, said,
The Christmas lights switch on events are always very popular and provide good old[-]fashioned family fun to get you into the Christmas spirit.
Come on down to either of the events, and join in the fun and celebrations.
Finally, there will also be the poignant lighting up of the Primrose Hospice Lights of Love trees, with a special ceremony taking place at 5 p.m. outside ASDA. Anyone requiring more information on any of these events should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the events team on 01527 534030.
