Southwold Christmas Lights Switch On - Friday 6th December 2013

Southwold's popular Christmas Lights Switch On event will take place on Friday 6th December 2013.

This year’s "nautical" themed event will commemorate both the 150th Anniversary of the RNLI in Southwold, and the 150th Anniversary of the Southwold Sailors' Reading Room – which celebrates its 150th birthday next year.

The Christmas Lights Switch On is a real community event enjoyed by locals and visitors alike and local shops and business will join in the “nautical” themed fun, with an opportunity to enter a “best themed shop” competition.

There will be stalls along the High Street, carol singing and a Santa’s Grotto at The Swan Hotel. Father Christmas will be along at 7pm to switch on Southwold’s Christmas Lights.

This year, buildings along the High Street will be decorated with trees and coloured lights.  Real Chirstmas trees will also decorate the Market Place and Greens around the Town.

Santa's Grotto will be also be open at The Swan Hotel on Saturday the 7th, 14th and 21st December 2013 between 2-4pm.
