City Centre Christmas Light Switch On will be bigger than ever

Posted 28th October 2019

This year’s city centre Christmas Light Switch On, organised by MyMiltonKeynes, will take place on Saturday 16th November and is set to spectacularly light up the city skyline for the festive period, marking the official countdown to Christmas.

The free event will take place at the front of intu Milton Keynes from 4.15pm with an hour of live entertainment before the main switch on. Performances from local dancers, singers, school children and the traditionally festive Salvation Army brass band will truly raise the Christmas spirit.

Father Christmas is guaranteed to stop by too, taking time out of his busy schedule to do the honours, as he and the Mayor lead the countdown to officially switch on the lights. Look out for the three giant Kings lit on the roof of Christ the Cornerstone Church, as well as the sparkling parcels and brand-new tree lights along Midsummer Boulevard – bursting into festive life. A spectacular pyrotechnic and laser show will light up the sky, signalling the start of the festive season across the city.

And, don’t miss out on the chance to win £1000’s worth of prizes, join this year’s MyChristmas campaign by sharing your Christmas moments in Milton Keynes on social channels using #MyChristmasMK.

The Christmas lights and switch on event is organised by MyMiltonKeynes (the Milton Keynes Business Improvement District) along with other key partners across the city centre.
