Northstowe Christmas Switch-On 25th November - Please join!
Published: 07 November 2023
On Saturday 25th November, the Christmas tree lights will be lit on The Green, Northstowe (CB24 1FD)!!
Please note: this will be a somewhat more low-key event than residents may have become used to in the last two years. However....we still have the following exciting things lined up for you - please do join in the fun and help the Town Mayor during the countdown to lighting up the Christmas lights at 6PM!
> Through the kind support from Northstowe Foodies there will be two (possibly three - TBC) food vans and also a drink van (with alcohol) - between the hours of 5 and 8 - some tables and chairs are likely to be arranged (TBC), so people can enjoy their food and drinks even more.
> Through the lovely help of Northstowe Hub, free Hot Chocolate drinks being served on The Green in front of The Cabin (Community Centre) between 5 and 7 pm.
> Through the wonderful offer from Anna J - from Northstowe Open Mic, she will be singing wonderful X-massy songs between the hours of 5 and 6 pm.
So: ALL WELCOME TO JOIN IN FOR A COZY GATHERING AND HELP COUNT DOWN TO SWITCHING ON THE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS - see you there? :)
Oh, and please also note that Northstowe Open Mic will have a (free) session that same evening in The Cabin (Community Centre) between 6:30 and 9pm as well!
