In what is always a great event for the Ripon community, there is set to be the usual array of entertainment before the big switch on itself.

The highly-anticipated Ripon Christmas lights will be switched on later this week. In what is always a great event for the local community to get together, there is set to be the usual array of entertainment before the big switch on itself. Here's the details for the Ripon Christmas lights switch on for 2021: When and where? The lights will be switched on this Saturday (20th November 2021). In the usual spot in Ripon's Market Square, the event will include live entertainment starting from 1pm, with the switch on at 5pm. There are also a few whispers that Santa will be coming all the way from Lapland to switch on the display... What entertainment will there be? Freddie Cleary will be on the big stage at Ripon Market Square from 2pm. He'll be followed by a Little Mix tribute act and a Beatles tribute band for some great live music. What improvements have been made? The city of Ripon spent more than £65,000 on brand new decorations and Christmas lights last year, but were unable to show them off due to the pandemic. The new lights extend for three miles beyond the Market Square and around the city centre. Are you heading to the Ripon Christmas lights switch on?
