Christmas Lights Switch-on!

Fri 16 Nov / The Old High Street

Dig out your festive jumper, get Bublé back on your playlist and join us for the Creative Quarter Christmas lights switch-on!

What better way to kick off the festive season in Folkestone's Creative Quarter, than with an evening of light, song and cheer. This year we are delighted to welcome author of My Name is Leon, Kit de Waal, who will be counting us down to the big switch-on and launching Folkestone Book Festival 2018.

To get you in the festive spirit, local choirs will be bringing the streets to life with song, our creative businesses will be stunning crowds with their Christmas window displays and shops will have extended opening hours - perfect for a spot of Christmas shopping!

Join us for this thoroughly joyous evening, meeting at the top of The Old High Street on Friday 16 November at 5.30pm

Be the first to hear about next year’s programme of authors and speakers
