Chesterfield Christmas lights switch on

Thousands flocked to Chesterfield town centre last night to experience the magic of the annual Christmas light switch-on.

The event (on Sunday, November 18) ran all day- with a Santa’s grotto, meet and greets with Paddington bear, a funfair and stalls for visitors to enjoy.

Peak FM along with stars from this year’s Pomegranate Theatre took to the main stage later in the afternoon before the lights were switched on at 4.45pm, flooding the town with festive colour.
