The official countdown to Christmas begins with our Christmas Lights Switch On events. Originally, this event was due to take place on Friday 26 November but due to a Red Weather Alert for high winds it has now been re-scheduled, so please now join us outside Jarrow Town Hall on Tuesday 30 November for this fun festive event.
The evening will include lots of great street entertainment and lovely festive music from local schools. Jarrow Cross C of E Primary school choir will be performing as will as a brass quartet, while colourful characters and street performers from Creative Seed will be mingling with the crowd.
