Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

THE town’s Christ­mas lights will burst into life on Satur­day, Novem­ber 28, with a fes­tive cel­e­bra­tion in the Mar­ket Place.

The newly-formed Mac­cles­field Town Coun­cil will take charge of this year’s Christ­mas switch-on with plans for a grand fire­work dis­play, a Christ­mas mar­ket, street per­form­ers, choirs and a brass band.

Mac­cles­field Town Mayor and coun­cil­lor Liz Durham will have the hon­our of turn­ing on the lights with Fa­ther Christ­mas.

Coun Durham said: “It’s go­ing to be a great event, cel­e­brat­ing our first year as Mac­cles­field Town Coun­cil.

“It should be a great at­mos­phere and a great way to start the Christ­mas sea­son. It will be fun for all the fam­ily.”

The lights will be switched on at 4.30pm.

There will be food and drink avail­able from the Christ­mas Mar­ket and fes­tive gift ideas at the Christ­mas Crafts Fayre in the town hall.

Driv­ers should be aware that Mar­ket Place, Cas­tle Street, Church­side and Church Street will be closed off to ve­hi­cles from 8am on the day of the event.

Mill Street and Ch­ester­gate will also be par­tially closed.
