Christmas Light Switch On 2023

High Wycombe’s annual Christmas Light Switch-On event returns this Saturday moving to a prime time for the town centre, enabling more visitors than ever to participate in the festive fun.

It all starts from 12 noon, with an exciting array of mouth-watering food trucks, festive games, children’s rides & entertainment, 25+ Christmas Gift & Charity Stalls lining the town centre streets as well as meet & greet sessions with The Grinch, a giant Snow Globe, and an appearance from a certain Mr. Father Christmas.

Plus two stages running throughout the day in the High Street and Frogmoor, the big switch on will take place at 5.15pm on the Frogmoor Stage with Suzanne Shaw, leading lady from the Swan’s very own ‘Beauty & The Beast’ pantomime pressing the button, alongside High Wycombe’s esteemed Mayor Cllr Paul Turner

Colin spoke to HWBIDCo’s CEO Melaine Williams, Alice Maisey from HWBIDCo events team, Lauren Ross from The Front Room and Cynthia St Ange from James William Diner about this year’s event.
