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.
