The clocks have gone back an hour, the nights are drawing in and Christmas is on its way. On 19 November, Blackburn will be switching on their Christmas lights on King William Street with a night jam packed with special guests and entertainment for all the family.
When you collect your Easirent hire car from our Blackburn branch, take the 10 minute ride into the city centre where you can park up at a number of car parks near to King William Street.
For the 2 hour show, special guests such as Alesha Dixon, X factor’s Jake Quickenden, Britain’s Got Talent Henry Gallagher, Ella Shaw from Langho and girl band Tiger Heart will be keeping the crowd on their feet along with appearances from Super Bike champion Carl Fogarty, and soap stars Peter Gunn and Alex Bain from Coronation Street.
In The Mall at 2:00pm and Blackburn Market Mall at 4:00pm, Small and Tiny from the Clangers will be meeting and greeting families as they arrive for the big switch on.
Parking will be available at The Mall, on Barton Street and at Feildon Street Car Park.
The switch on will also be the beginning of the season’s late night shopping at The Mall, Blackburn & other shops around the town centre.
