Alhambra Lights Switch On, Christmas

Hero pups, Sabers and Santa lead the way for Alhambra lights switch on

Give your little ones a gift they won’t forget this Christmas as the Alhambra kicks off its annual lights switch on with a meet and greet with your favourite hero pups.  

The Barnsley shopping centre will be lighting up for Christmas on the 16th November between 5-7pm and the impressive line-up this year also brings a battle against the imperialist forces as live saber training takes place on stage.

Winners of the Dearne FM School Choir will also be performing and visitors will have the chance to bag themselves lots of exciting prizes as free giveaways run throughout the event.

Finally, the night concludes with Santa switching on the lights and handing out goodies… Has your little boy or girl been good this year?

Steph Higham, Alhambra Marketing Manager said: “Christmas is an exciting time at the Alhambra and our light switch on will get everyone into the festive spirit. We have a great selection of entertainment on offer including Santa to switch on our brand new decorations.”

The event marks the start of a range of Christmas activities, including late night shopping, taking place every Wednesday and Friday from Wednesday 23rd until 8pm. There will also be a Santa’s grotto where children can write a letter to Santa and in return receive a virtual reply, plus don’t miss the 4D Sleigh experience.
