What's On (Nov 16-18): Cleethorpes Christmas Trees switch-on, GWA Supershow and more
A trio of festive spruces will be illuminated this Friday at the Cleethorpes Christmas Tree Lights switch-on.
The fun will begin when the cast of this year's winter panto, Dick Whittington, at the Parkway Cinema, push the button at the base of the 22ft tree at Cleethorpes Memorial Hall at 6pm.
It will be blessed, followed by a procession of the crowd up Isaac's Hill to St Peter's Church, where celebrity singer Leroy Vickers will perform Christmas carols and switch on the lights of a 15-foot Norwegian spruce at 6.30pm. He will also illuminate the rest of St Peter's Avenue.
The procession will then meet the Mayor of North East Lincolnshire, Councillor Mike Burton, at High Cliff, who will switch-on the tree bought by the Seaview Street Traders Association (SSTA), with a little help from Cleethorpes In Bloom, North East Lincolnshire Council and McCanns Lighting Services.
