This year the annual Christmas lights switch on in Royal Wootton Bassett will include a variety of acts including The Carnival Royalty, RWBA Dancers and the Local Youth Network to name but a few.

Royal Wootton Bassett Town Council and organiser, Lisa Williams, have launched a fundraising effort in order to show the event on a screen for all to see. Local MP, James Gray, has voiced his support for the cause:

“This is a wonderful opportunity to bring the community together and encourage young people to get involved and build their confidence. Having a large screen projecting what is happening onstage would make an enormous difference and enable locals and visitors alike to clearly see the performances throughout the evening.

I hope people will dig deep as this is an extremely worthwhile cause and one which will benefit the whole community.”

The Royal Wootton Bassett Christmas lights switch on takes place on Friday 30th November at 6pm.
