Fox Valley gets ready for BIG Christmas Lights Switch On this Friday!

13 November 2018

The team at Fox Valley in north Sheffield are preparing for the centre’s BIG Christmas Lights Switch on this Friday which launches a fantastic weekend of festive fun and entertainment. 

From 4pm there will be a packed lineup of entertainment on the bandstand as well as a festive themed market, with the big Christmas lights switch on at 5:30pm, followed by a special fireworks display.

The Sheffield Rock Choir will perform at 6pm, followed by the Deepcar Brass Band who will close the annual event which is sponsored by Burrows Mazda Sheffield.

There will also be candy cane stilt walkers handing out sweet treats and the stores will be open until 7pm for some late night Christmas shopping! Santa will also be making an appearance thanks to the team from the Wortley Rotary Club.

The Switch On launches a busy weekend of events at the centre which will also feature a two day visit on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th from the Coca Cola Truck.

The beautiful Christmas display will be switched on with the help of the centres’ Christmas competition winner.

The event sponsors Burrows Mazda Sheffield are supporting Sheffield Children's Hospital this Christmas. They've teamed up with the charity and will be providing children on the wards with Christmas presents and Fox Valley will be a drop off point during Friday’s event.

Centre Manager at Fox Valley, Laura Robinson, said:   “This is definitely our favourite time of year here at Fox Valley, our Christmas display is going to look fantastic and we’re looking forward to launching what will be a fantastic weekend on Friday evening. We have lots of entertainment and a great Christmas Market planned as well as a visit from Santa.”

The Fox Valley Christmas Lights event will take place on Friday 16th November starting with the Special Friday Christmas Market running from 10am. Entertainment will take place 4-7pm and the Christmas Lights will turn on at 5:30pm.
