Santa Claus is coming to town. The Big Switch on 2012.

The Big Switch On 2012 will be taking place on the evening of Thursday 29th November.

This is a joint event between several village organisations:


  • Audlem Traders — many of whom will be open late on the evening to facilitate local late night Christmas shopping.

  • ADAS who are organising the switching on of the Christmas lights, including those on the big tree in the Square.

  • The RNLI's local fundraising branch — who are bringing Santa to the village via the Audlem Lass at Audlem Wharf.

  • FASA — who are organising the ever popular Kids' Santa Parade from Audlem St James' school.


Over the next few weeks, the participating organisations and businesses will be keeping you posted on all the activities and special events happening on our very special evening.

Please note that this is a free 'open to all event'!

Timetable:


  • 5.00pm: Start of the Santa Parade from Audlem School.

  • 5.30pm — 5.45pm: The Big Switch On in Audlem Square

  • 6.00pm: Santa arriving at Audlem Wharf.
