Christmas Lights Switch On

28 NOV 2019. Join in the Christmas celebrations as Falmouth school children parade through the town to The Moor for the annual lights switch on.

Falmouth Christmas lights switch-on is a magical evening.

The evening starts when schoolchildren representing the town’s primary schools, gather on Events Square with decorations and colourful withy lanterns. They are joined by a community choir and band and of course Santa before processing through the town towards The Moor.

Once on The Moor, each school sings a Christmas carol on the state-of-the-art-stage before the big switch-on. The evening is organised by the Falmouth Town Team as always and compered by Pirate FM.

The Falmouth Christmas lights are switched on each year by a nominated community champion. This is a person or group who after a public vote, gets to switch on the lights for that year.
