The Big Switch On

Home » Latest News » The Big Switch On

A big night in the Audlem calendar is coming up on Thursday. This is the programme as sent to us by Ralph Warburton of ADAS:

November 29th — The Big Switch On Night

St James' School children will arrive in the Square to enjoy the celebrations with FASA holding a tombola under the Buttermarket. Audlem Hammers young footballers will be singing carols in the coachway of Williams' shop

The Sponsors of the Big Tree, Louisa & Martin Balaam and their children, will throw the switch to light up the big tree and then Santa – organised by ADAS  - will arrive on the canal wharf, helped in glorious fashion by the Audlem Lass and her  team.

You can light a candle to float — in aid of the Royal Lifeboat Institution — on the canal ahead of Santa as he sails into view. 

All the traders of the village will be open on the night with lots of attractions and games. A really happy family night in the best Christmas Village of all Cheshire.

And there's live music in the Lord Combermere too.
