Wednesfield 2010 Christmas Lights Switch On: 3rd Dec

The annual switching on of the Christmas Lights in Wednesfield which takes place on Friday 3rd December this year is set to be bigger and better than ever.

Not only will Wednesfield have it’s very own Christmas Tree located in front of the new Library (the first for several years), but this year’s switch on will see the Hight Street closed to traffic in order to accommodate more people,  fayre ground rides and The Wolf FM’s Dickie Dodd and his roadshow.

Approximate running order:

3:30pm: High Street closed – buses/traffic will be diverted along Alfred Squire Rd and Neachells Lane.

Dickie Dodd’s Wolf FM Roadshow will be broadcasting from outside Age UK (Help The Aged) in the High Street to celebrate the shop’s 15th year in Wednesfield.

Fayre ground rides will be available for children to enjoy.

4pm – 5pm: Children from local school choirs will sing Christmas carols inside St Thomas’ Church – the audio (and possibly video) will be broadcast outside the Church.

5:30pm: Wednesfield native and runner up on BBC TV show The Apprentice, Ruth Badger and the Mayor of Wolverhampton Councillor Malcolm Gwinnett will switch on the lights (including Christmas Tree lights).

6:30pm: The High Street will re-open to traffic after the event has finished.

About the Author

Co-founder of WV11.co.uk. I live in Wednesfield and am involved in various community groups and associations. I build websites and develop digital marketing strategies for a living. When not writing for WV11 or attending meetings I play drums in my band Arbor Lights. I think Wednesfield is a great place, with a great sense of community and it isn't given the credit it deserves. Hopefully WV11.co.uk goes some way to fixing this!
