You know Christmas time is finally upon us when the Coca-Cola advert comes on TV. That’s usually the second sign; supermarkets usually get on the festive merchandise as soon as Halloween is over!
The dark nights and twinkly lights on the streets definitely get most into the winter spirit though, and tomorrow, Friday 25th November 2011 the Christmas lights in Ormskirk will be switched on by the Mayor of West Lancashire, Councillor Rob Bailey and the winner of the Ormskirk Advertiser competition.
Set to be a good night, the festivities start at 4:30pm at the clock tower in the centre of Ormskirk. The whole event is free so it’s a student’s heaven!
There’s 80’s group Black Lace performing, along with Robbie Williams tribute act, juggling and balloon modelling by Steve McGinnigle, Base Dance troupe and vocal artist Megan Owen.
At 6:00pm the carols will commence then just before 6:30pm the town crier will lead the countdown ending with the Christmas light switch on!
So it should be a fun and busy night! Visit http://www.westlancs.gov.uk/council__democracy/news_and_publications/this_months_news/christmas_spirit_in_ormskirk.aspx for more information!
