Crawley’s Christmas Lights Live – Celebrity switch-on

We’re very excited to announce that this year’s Christmas lights will be switched on by popular TV and radio presenter Stephen Mulhern.

Stephen, appearing in this year’s panto Sleeping Beauty at The Hawth, will entertain the crowd before flicking on the switch with guest appearances from fellow cast members Josh James (2010 UK Eurovision entrant) and local actress Lauren Cocoracchio who will be playing Beauty.

This Christmas light switch-on extravaganza promises to be an afternoon of festive fun and will set the scene for a big town centre celebration.
