The date has been set for this year's Christmas light switch on but more details will come.

This year Preston's BID have partnered with Smooth North West, as well as being sponsored by St George's Shopping Centre, North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce, Luxury House Share and A Plan Insurance.

Described as the city's biggest and most exciting event of the year, Preston's BID are inviting everybody to join them, and a host of famous faces, as they "throw a big family party and light up the city for Christmas."

Last year, the Christmas lights switch on took place virtually due to the Coronavrius pandemic, so this year is hoped to be bigger than ever to make up for it.
