Sunday 10th will be the actual switching on of the lights and the legendary fireworks finale.
A fantastic weekend of FREE family fun and entertainment has been planned. Activities will be spread throughout the centre to encourage shoppers to move around. Two stage areas will be used, Gallowgate seating area for the family/children’s entertainment, while the main live performances will take place on the balustrade on the upper level, in front of the Subway sign.
