The Fort turns on Christmas lights with special guests!

The Fort is kicking off festivities in style as it switches on the Christmas lights on Sunday 27 November with special guests including kids’ TV favourites Fifi and Bumble and up and coming fabulous girl group, Parade! Entertainment for all the family will begin at 11am and the lights will be switched on at 4.30pm.

Along with other fun characters including Rocket the Reindeer, Cheeky the Snowman, stilt walking Christmas Trees and Fifi and Bumble will be making appearances at various times throughout the day to meet and greet their biggest fans and then appear on-stage to help switch on the lights on with Parade and the big man in red himself!

Marjan Horne, Centre Manager at The Fort Shopping Park, commented “Christmas is such a magical time of year and we are very excited to be celebrating with the Light Switch On event. The day will be great fun for the whole family as well as completely free, and I can’t wait to get shoppers in a festive mood.”
