The Valley are getting ready for the centre's annual Christmas lights switch-on, which is expected to be the biggest yet.

Headlining the event are The D-Day Darlings who will be performing wartime classics for the whole family to enjoy. The event is being hosted by local radio presenter, Kirsty, and it will also feature 3-piece pop-band Chasing Deer, as well as Valerian Entertainment, who are guaranteed to thrill the crowds with their world-class LED stilt-walking and robot show. Plus, there will be a special visit from Santa himself.

Fiona Spear, Marketing Manager at The Valley, said

'This is our favourite time of year. Our Christmas display is going to look fantastic, and we can't wait to launch the festivities. There will be something for everyone and the atmosphere is amazing every year as we all come together to create such a fun evening.’

The Christmas Lights Switch on starts at 6 pm and finishes at 7:30 pm on Thursday 28th November with shops staying open until 8 pm.
