With the festive season approaching and preparations underway for the annual Christmas Lights Switch-On, Derby LIVE would like to invite local acts, community groups, dance groups and performers to apply to take part in the parade.

Derby’s Christmas Lights Switch-On will take place on Sat 14 November. This year’s event will be hosted by local favourites, Capital FM Breakfast Show presenters Dino & Pete and will feature an exciting line up of acts as well as a headline star. The celebrations on the Market Place will begin from 3.30pm, with a festive parade that will travel down from The Spot at 4.30pm, through the City Centre to the Market Place.

Councillor Martin Rawson, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Communities and City Centre Regeneration, said:

“I look forward to seeing our fantastic local talent coming forward and being showcased in this year’s Christmas Lights Switch-On Parade. Derby has great depth of talent which can really add something special to the celebrations.”
