The Christmas season will hit full swing when hundreds of people attend this month’s Festival of Lights on 18 November from 6pm at John Mackintosh Square.

The event is always a big hit with the community with local school choirs and dance academies coming together to put on a festive show.

Children will also enjoy a special appearance by Father Christmas and his elves, but kids will not need to wait too long for presents with numerous stalls selling handcrafted toys in the area.

However, the main event is undoubtedly the switching on of the Christmas lights that mark the start of the holiday season, a moment that sparks the imagination of every child in the audience.

With beaming smiles, the excited bobbing heads of children eager to meet Santa close in on his temporary workshop set up in the square before he heads back to his real factory in the North Pole.

The event is organised by the Gibraltar Cultural Services and is in conjunction with the Gibraltar Electricity Authority who take care of the logistical side.

Following the switching-on ceremony, the Christmas lights will turn on automatically every day until the 6 January next year.
