A firework spectacular is set to shine bright at WillowBrook’s Christmas lights switch on.
The official start of Christmas festivities at the WillowBrook Centre will be celebrated with a spectacular firework display on November 16.
This year’s seasonal lights switch on is set to be nothing short of sensational with live music from Britain’s Got Talent (BGT) finalists, fire jugglers and more.
The Town Square of the WillowBrook Centre, in Bradley Stoke, will come alive around 5pm with music being played by Bradley Stoke Radio.
Centre manager, Andy Wynn, said: “We’ve got a build-up of music and entertainment for more than two-and-a-half hours before the official Christmas lights switch on at 7.30pm. We’re extremely excited about all the events we have planned for the evening. This will definitely be a night not to miss!”
Born to Swing, who reached the final of BGT in 2014, will take to the stage with live performances at 5.30pm and 6.45pm. Meanwhile, at 6.15pm fire jugglers Loz and Marky will wow the crowds with their daredevil act.
The big lights switch on will take place at 7.30pm and will be followed by a firework display high in the Bradley Stoke sky.
Andy said: “We’re always trying to think of ways to make the start of the Christmas season a fun, family time to bring the whole community together, so we’re delighted to have a whole evening of entertainment planned.”
There’s plenty taking place at the WillowBrook Centre during the festive season, including a Christmas Craft Fayre on November 24 and 25.
Small, local and vintage businesses are still be welcomed and encouraged to book a stall to sell their gifts and goodies.
Stalls are £20 each and can be booked by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The weekend is sure to be popular with WillowBrook visitors and is being organised by a national firm that runs these types of events.
Live music will provide Christmas entertainment throughout December, with the City of Bristol Brass Band performing on the evenings of the 7 and 20.
Andy said: “We’re also looking forward to welcoming Bradley Stoke Churches school carols, accompanied by a brass band on December 19. What better way to feel extra Christmassy than with Christmas Carols.”
