Preston’s Christmas Lights Switch On takes place from 5.30pm on Saturday and we had live updates below.Advertisement
The Christians, Jack Walton and Coronation Street actor Marc Baylis are among the star names turning on the Preston lights.
This year’s Christmas lights are set to stretch further than ever before, going up Friargate, Fishergate, the Flag Market and onto part of Church Street.
See pictures from this year’s big switch on.
Live acts will perform on the Flag Market before the countdown to the switch on begins around 7.45pm as thousands of Prestonians are expected to come and watch.
A world record attempt is also part of the fun to set the record for the most women wearing a moustache in one place.
