Christmas Lights Switch On and Grotto Opening

Celebrate the start of Christmas in Kingston.

Victorian street magicians, sideshows and travelling circus performers will be among the attractions as Kingston marks the start of the festive season with a Charles Dickens-inspired Christmas Lights Switch on.

Alongside the traditional Christmas Lights Switch On, Christmas market and performers there will be much more to see such as the Kingston Christmas Craft Fair, school choirs and face painting for children guaranteeing something on the night to delight and entertain the whole family.

Our Santa's Workshop Grotto then opens for one night from 6 - 8pm on Toys, Third Floor. The Grotto then re-opens on Saturday 28 November at 10am, part time until Christmas Eve. For full Grotto opening hours, click here
