Hamilton Christmas Lights Switch On

About Hamilton Christmas Lights Switch On

This year's exciting news is that we are bringing boyband Five to headline the Christmas Light Switch on.

Back in the late 90s and early 2000s the band topped the pop charts with hits like Slam Dunk (Da Funk), When the Lights Go Out, Everybody Get Up, If Ya Gettin' Down, and Keep On Movin'.

Following the large crowds attracted to the town in recent years for S Club, Bewitched, Jedward and last year’s headliners Atomic Kitten, Hamilton is sure to be buzzing on Saturday 23rd November.

Due to the crowd size we will again hold the Christmas Light Switch on from Castle Street with Five appearing from 5 – 5.30pm. We will have the traditional carnival attractions in Townhead Street and this year we will be bringing additional entertainment to the top cross from 10am till 4pm.

We will have a stage area with performances from the Jersey Tones and a FREE snow globe attraction will be available for shoppers to take their own photos.

And there's more!

Saturday 7th December will see Santa and his reindeer arrive back in the town to parade between Castle Street and Quarry Street Top Cross. Santa will be joined by Stilt walkers, children’s characters, elves and street entertainers with the fun starting from 12.30 pm

We will also be joined by the town's Old Parish Church Drama Kirk who will be bringing this year’s Christmas message to the street as part of our parade. Last year’s play was a real success and we look forward to another cracking day.

We will also be bringing a traditional brass band to the town on the four Sundays leading up to Christmas together with children’s characters like Peppa Pig, Paw Patrol, Olaf and the Minions. Please share with all who may be interested.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Hamilton Christmas Lights Switch On are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
