It won’t be long until the Christmas season rolls around and you can start celebrating early in Sidmouth with the annual Christmas Light Switch on, which this year, is taking place on Saturday 18th November.

As usual, there will be a chance to win the Golden Ticket, which will give the winner a £100 toy voucher to spend at Gliddons. The Golden Ticket draw will take place at 5.15pm, with the light switch on following at 5.30pm.

As part of this year’s celebrations, there will be a launch event for Sidmouth School of Art’s Winter Lights Festival which is planned to take place at the Sensory Garden and Riverside Walkway in the New Year.
