Wrexham Christmas Lights Switch On & Events 2016

Christmas may still be over two months away, however work is already underway to bring the people of Wrexham a fantastic night of entertainment and celebrations for this year’s Christmas Light Switch On.

On Thursday 17 November the town centre will be transformed into a winter wonderland, with a magical lantern parade led by Father Christmas taking place through the town centre.

As with the previous three years there will be a colourful and festive lantern parade through the town centre which will be led by Father Christmas
