Christmas light switch on at The Lexicon

Christmas tree in Bracknell town centre

On Sunday 24 November, the Christmas lights at The Lexicon will be switched on as part of a jam-packed afternoon of festive fun.

With activities taking place between midday and 7pm, the festivities start with a special performance by local singing group, Bracknell and Ascot’s The Rock Choir, with their blend of popular favourites and feel-good music in Princess Square.

At 3pm, some of LaplandUK’s favourite elves Wish, Elva and Scribble, will lead the crowd in magically turning on the lights of a 10-metre-tall Christmas tree in Union Square. Children from Garth Under Fives Nursery will help the elves by chanting The Lexicon Christmas Wish song until their wishes are granted and lights adorn the tree.

Mobile activities include Victorian Christmas duos singing traditional Christmas songs, a roller-skating Christmas pudding and robin and a few extra surprises.

From 5:30pm the entertainment starts in Bond Square, with the Rock Choir and a performance by dance troupe Boogie Storm, who reached the final of Britain’s Got Talent 2016 with their dazzling storm trooper dance routine.

At 6pm the lights will go on across the town centre accompanied by a firework display which can be viewed from Bond Square.

To finish the evening, X Factor 2017 winners, popular boy-band Rak-Su will be taking to the stage.

Sue Boor, head of marketing at The Lexicon said :

“We hope that such an array of different activity and entertainment will appeal to all the family and look forward to a fantastic afternoon.”

New for this year, LaplandUK’s immersive story-telling experience, is available to book until Christmas Eve.
