This year’s annual Christmas lights switch on will be hosted by Metro Radio Breakfast presenters, Steve and Karen on Wednesday 06 November, from 6.30pm until 8pm in Exhibition Square.
We'll be joined by Britain's got Talent The Champion's winners, Twist and Pulse who will be performing a special body-popping dance routine and other special guests before flicking the switch, illuminating each mall with nearly 210,000 glowing LED lights!
Making a true spectacle of the malls, the impressive decorations include a mix of iridescent lighting, ceiling hangings, giant festive statues and took a staggering 1,500 man-hours to install.
Expect to see over 100 giant baubles hanging throughout the Red Mall, glistening ice-like chandeliers adding a contemporary feel to the Platinum Mall plus huge glittering Christmas presents along green mall.
This is a free event, tickets are not required.
