Provost Len Scoullar has again organised this year’s event. He revealed more about this year’s lights switch-on and why he enjoys organising the event each year.

He said: “We will have a joint choir made up of primary school children. All the schools have been invited to send five or six pupils each.

“Two head girls will switch-on the lights this year. I just hope the weather is kind to us.

“It’s a ceremony that the young people enjoy very much. And I’m always delighted to organise it for that reason.”

There is sure to be a large crowd again for this year’s event on Friday, at 4pm.
