Redcar’s Christmas light switch-on was bigger than ever this year. Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council held a festive extravaganza weekend, over the 25, 26 and 27 of November.
Friday saw the High Street lit up in spectacular style at the hands of special guest Coronation Street’s heart throb Jason Grimshaw aka Ryan Thomas.
The Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, Councillor Olwyn Peters, before the event said: “This is going to be a spectacular weekend all brought together with the Town’s festive cheer. I look forward to joining in and sharing the important duty of switching on the lights.”
The switch-on is was part of a day of festive activities in the high Street, with the actual switch-on taking place on the Main Stage next to the Town clock.
Over the rest of the weekend Redcar transformed into a festive wonderland with a special log cabin market, carol singers, art and craft fairs, the Redcar donkeys and much much more.
