Brierfield prepares for Christmas lights switch-on


Brierfielders are invited to go along and see your Christmas lights switched on Friday – November 22nd – at a special event outside the Brierfield Town Hall.

From 6-30pm there’ll be entertainment for all the family, including a traditional Punch and Judy show and a magic show.

Christmas carols will be played by Nelson Brass Band to get all in the mood for the festive season.

The lights themselves will be switched on at 7-15pm by the Mayor of Brierfield, town councillor Qamar Shahzad who said: “Our Christmas lights switch on is always a popular event and brings all the community together. I’m very much looking forward to having the honour of lighting in Brierfield for Christmas.”
