Christmas Lights Switch on 2018

Thursday 15th November 2018 - 12pm onwards - Town wide

There will be reindeer on the Rotunda (at the North Street end of Friary Street), a host of children’s entertainment around town throughout the afternoon plus live music on the Experience Guildford stage outside Holy Trinity Church and at Guildford Fringe Buskers’ Corner.

Take part in the #ElfieSelfie competition! Find the EG Christmas Elves as they dash around town throughout the day (3 – 6 & 7 – 8), take a selfie with them and share it via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #ElfieSelfie and #GuildfordLights to be entered in to a prize draw to win a family ticket to this year’s Yvonne Arnaud pantomime, Cinderella. *

At 6.00pm Eagle Radio's breakfast host Peter Gordon will host the balcony show from the Guildhall ahead of the light switch on at 7.00pm. Afterwards, there will be a spectacular firework display courtesy of White Lion Walk and even more music!

You can also enjoy a spot of late night shopping plus some brilliant offers, with the launch of The Little Book of Offers.

This year there will also be two dedicated quiet spaces at Cosy Club and Skipton Building Society, so that those who might find the crowds a little overwhelming can still soak up the atmosphere of the evening.

Celebrate the arrival of the festive season in Guildford town centre!

* 4 x tickets for Cinderella on Wednesday 2nd January at 5.30pm. Non-transferable. Winner’s will be contacted on Monday 19th November via Social Media.
