Didsbury’s Big Switch-On

21 November 2019 , 6:50 pm - 8:00 pm


It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year!

This year’s switch-on fun kicks off at 5.30, with free craft activities for children in the library (under 8s must be accompanied).

Then, it’s everybody out onto Wilmslow Road for the countdown to Christmas (from 6.50pm)!  Enjoy live music from Manchester Contemporary Youth Choir and festive fun hosted by our brilliant MC, Andrew Simcock. He’ll be announcing Didsbury’s Christmassiest windows, before welcoming a Very Special Guest (the clue’s in the picture!), who’ll arrive in style for that all-important lights switch-on. Drinks and nibbles, kindly provided by local traders, will add to the seasonal cheer.

Afterwards, it’s all round to Home Community Cafe for mulled wine, hot chocolate, cupcakes, mince pies and tasty treats.

The event is organised by Didsbury Community Association in partnership with Didsbury Traders. Thanks to Didsbury Civic Society, Didsbury Blues in the Community and our sound technician, the brilliant Mitchell Brough.

And thanks too, to all those businesses who contribute and help to light up Didsbury!
