Christmas Light Switch-On 2023


The much-loved Christmas Light Switch-On event returned this Saturday 18th November with MyMiltonKeynes and MKFM.

Christmas officially arrived in Milton Keynes as the Christmas Lights were turned on by The Mayor & Mayoress of Milton Keynes and Father Christmas at Midsummer Place.

Wes and Trev from MKFM hosted the event on stage, alongside there was a sign language interpreter. The Collaboration Choir, Dale and Dancebox all performed along with MKFM's very own DJ Hurley.

Towards the end of the show, local mascots, The Mayor & Mayoress of Milton Keynes and of course Father Christmas took to the stage for the big countdown.

Included in this year’s display was a HUGE Christmas themed projection on the wall above the audiences heads, ‘cold’ fireworks, pyrotechnics, lasers, and snow canons!
