Chesterfield is set to be bathed with a magical glow at the annual Christmas Lights Switch on event.

The event gets underway from 12noon with the Market Place full of stalls, games and rides. Or why not visit the Market Hall and see Santa in his Grotto?

The switch-on stage show starts at 3.30pm in New Square hosted by some of your favourite presenters from Peak FM joined by stars of this year’s pantomime – Peter Pan – at the Pomegranate Theatre, The Mayor and Mayoress of Chesterfield and Chase from Paw Patrol.

There will be competitions with great prizes including tickets to the pantomime and a day at Gulliver’s Kingdom. Enter the prize draw for a fantastic hamper of presents from the traders on the open market and the Market Hall. Pick up your entry form from the Market Café in the Market Hall and drop your completed form there as well. Just fill in your name and contact details and tell us what you think is best about Chesterfield Market Hall. The winner will be drawn at the switch-on so make sure you’re there in case you’re lucky enough to win.

The Christmas Lights Switch-on will take place at 4.45pm.
