Cambridge Christmas Lights Switch On Moves Online
Cambridge's annual Christmas Lights Switch On Event this year will be moving online in light of the ongoing risk of Covid 19.
Working in partnership with Star Radio, Cambridge BID will coordinate and deliver an afternoon of festive fun on air on Sunday 15th November to honour the annual event and to really kick off Christmas in Cambridge.
Becky Burrell, Marketing Manager for Cambridge BID says:
“In light of the current situation we have recognised that organising a large scale, public event cannot be done safely therefore, this year we are doing things slightly differently. Working with Star Radio we hope to bring all the usual fun from the day, on-air. We will have local community acts perform on the radio and will be encouraging people to enjoy the event from the comfort of their own homes. We will also have a live video stream of the lights being switched on at the regular time of 5pm.”
The show will be full of the usual community spirit and there may also be a surprise visit from Santa. Josh Lovatt, Star Radio Breakfast Presenter says:
“Christmas is my favourite time of the year and I’m thrilled to bring the magic of the city’s lights being switched on into people’s homes safely this year. I’m looking forward to playing the festive tunes and giving local groups the chance to perform on the radio, just as they would do on stage. I’ve already opened up my second packet of mince pies in anticipation.”
