Christmas Lights Switch On

Christmas Lights Switch On Day will be on Saturday 1st December 2018.

We would like to say a huge thank you to all who took part and who came out to support Sandwich this year. It was lovely to see so many happy smiley faces.

Thank you.

We are a very small team so if you would like to help us please email us at


Come and join us !

As in 2017, festive stalls, music, street entertainment and lots of food and drink. A lantern-lit parade around the town in early evening and the Grand Christmas lights switch on at 7pm.

Stalls will be on the Guildhall Forecourt and inside the Guildhall itself from 10.00am.  The outdoor programme starts at 3.00pm.

A funfair will be on the Guildhall car park, thanks to DDC for making this available at no charge.

Lantern making workshops will be 3rd, 10th and 17th  November in St Mary’s Arts Centre
