Christmas Light Switch On with Star Radio at the Market Square

Date:Sunday 20th November



On Sunday 20th November, we head to Market Square to turn on the city centre lights.

The annual Big Switch On kicks off Christmas season this year with Star Radio taking control of stage, promising to entertain the crowds from midday.  There will be a lively line up from local performing arts clubs, choirs and much much more.  This year we are joined by Cambridge United and Mayor of the City of Cambridge – Councillor Mark Ashton to help switch on the Christmas lights.

Becky Burrell, Marketing Manager Cambridge BID says ‘We are working hard to deliver a fabulous event this year.  It’s been missing for the last couple of years and although we worked to deliver an on-air and online event, it’s not quite the same so we are really looking forward to seeing and hearing all of the fantastic performances again this year.’

Josh Lovatt, Star Drivetime presenter says “We’re absolutely thrilled to be part of the festive sparkle in Cambridge. The Christmas lights switch-ons are amongst our favourite events of the year – and we’re excited to host them in person once again. We can’t wait to see everyone’s Christmas jumpers!”
