Weather hits lights switch-on

First published in News by

SALISBURY’S Christmas lights switch-on event has been scaled back in the light of bad weather conditions being forecast for this evening.

The city council has decided to go-ahead with the event, but entertainment will be on the Guildhall steps rather than on a stage with a big screen.

The fireworks are still scheduled to take place at the moment but the council may be forced to rethink this later in the day.

The revised schedule is:

6pm – Local band These Days will do an acoustic set

6.20pm – Spire FM talent winner singer

6.50pm – Blessing Canon Mullally

6.52pm – Mayor of Salisbury speech

6.55pm – X Factor District 3 live on Guildhall steps

7pm – Countdown to lights switch on

7pm – Fireworks TBC

7.05pm – Show end
