Ipswich Big Light Switch On
This year’s big switch-on will take place at the Cornhill, with an evening of entertainment and panto antics. Singer Jade Mayjean of The Voice fame will perform on stage, with a mix of original tracks from her album and classic fun Christmas tunes, and cast members will give a sneak preview of The Regent’s Christmas pantomime, Cinderella.
Hudson Group will be giving away bags of reindeer food and collecting for charity, and children will be able to have selfies taken in front of Santa’s sleigh. The event will also mark the start of the town’s late-night shopping on Thursdays until Christmas. Organisers say there is limited capacity and gates will be shut when the limit is reached, so it is advisable to get there early.
