Switching on the lights will be a collaboration of the Peter Pan panto cast, Father Christmas and his friends. Watch as the decorations light up the night and enjoy festive performances from talented local entertainers. We hope you enjoy the magic of the evening and take the opportunity to visit one of our fantastic restaurants to really make a night of it!”
