The 2017 Christmas lights switch-on is set to be an action packed day of festivities.

Throughout the day local schools, theatre groups and musicians will keep the crowds entertained.

Younger children will be able to visit Father Christmas in his grotto and will receive a free gift. There will also be a live nativity, funfair rides, face painting and the Farnham Maltings’ pop up craft. For the adults why not treat yourself to a glass of bubbly or a warming mulled cider.

At 4.30pm Farnham’s Christmas Lights will be turned on!

After the switch-on the fun will continue until 6pm with more singing and dancing on stage.
