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 haveÂ 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, Â 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.
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,Â 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.
