ELVES are busy preparing for this year's Christmas Light Switch On. 

The countdown has begun for Evesham's light switch on, which will occur on November 18. 

There will be free opportunities to visit Father Christmas from 2pm to 5pm, who landed this year in the Valkyrie Bar.

We also have a great lineup of local musicians performing on the stage in Market Square.

Santa Sax, Avonbank Brass Band, The Lizards, Beth Humphries and All Killer will also perform in the Market Square.

The switch-on will take place at 5.30pm and will be followed by fireworks.
