The official switch on of the Cranleigh Christmas Lights takes place at 6pm on Saturday 19th November 2016.
With Christmas rapidly approaching, thoughts are turning to the festive season. Cranleigh Chamber of Commerce invites you to join us for the official switch-on of the Cranleigh Christmas Lights on Saturday 19th November 2016.
This year’s event features an exciting programme of live entertainment, Christmas markets and food stalls, and late night shopping.
Why not make a day of it and do a spot of Christmas shopping with our independent retailers, get a bite to eat in the village restaurants or food market in Stocklund Square, and enjoy performances by some of Cranleigh’s best local talent.
Fountain Square will play host to a range of local musicians, choirs and performers, all hosted by Simon Rose from Eagle Radio.
Please share your photos of the event on Social Media using the hashtag #CranleighChristmas.
At 6pm Noddy and Santa officially switch on the Christmas Lights in Fountain Square.
