Christmas Lights Switch On Events across Wolverhampton

There will be fun for all the family at a series of events across the city, starting with the city centre switch on in Queen Square on Saturday 18 November, 2023.

A full afternoon of entertainment begins at 3pm with a funfair, real reindeer, face painting, food and drink and much more. Kids favourite Bluey will entertain the children with The Voice Star Lia White taking to the stage to warm up the audience before R&B boyband Damage serenade the crowd with a set of their hits.

They will then be joined by the Mayor of Wolverhampton Councillor Dr Michael Hardacre, alongside stars of this year’s Grand Theatre pantomime Snow White and Father Christmas to switch on the lights at 6pm.

The city centre fun is not the only festive celebration in Wolverhampton, as Christmas lights will also be switched on at Wednesfield, Tettenhall, Bilston and Bantock House with Father Christmas and the Mayor of Wolverhampton doing the honours, plus entertainment from local artists and Wolverhampton’s very own Dicky Dodd.
