Families young and old will come wide-eyed to witness the sparkle and nostalgia of this classic Christmas event.

The entertainment begins on Sunday the 3rd of December at 4pm with plenty of festive cheer from Hungerford Town Band, the angelic voices of Hungerford primary school and raising the roof with Rock Choir.

Make sure you come hungry as refreshments will include a smoking BBQ, churros and hot drinks to include freshly brewed espressos for the coffee snobs!

The town’s signature Christmas Tree lights will be switched on at the town hall steps by the award-winning novelist Robert Harris at around 5pm.

Spread the joy by sharing this event with your family and friends and make 2017 the best switch-on event yet!
