KILMARNOCK CHRISTMAS LIGHTS SWITCH ON 2017

Come and join us for Kilmarnock's Christmas Lights Switch On. This year become a participant and not just a spectator at our “Winter Warm Up” when we open the Main stage at 2pm or with our mass Choir-aoke when Centrestage Gospel and Soul Choir will get us all singing along!

Loudon Musical Society are also going to give us their version of the popular TV series “Pitch Battle” so a wee bit of Saturday night TV for us! Ryan Lawrie from last year’s X factor will be performing on the main stage as will the massively popular local band Angelstar – back by popular demand!

Colin McCardle will be our host on the main stage.

There is a Craft workshop for primary aged kids to make Christmas decorations and there will be special guests for the wee ones with Anna, Elsa, Snow White, Spiderman and Captain America!! There will also be face painters and Balloon modellers on hand to do their magic for our youngsters

King Street will be awash with Winter Wonders characters including the Snow Queen, Jack Frost, elves and quite a few more!

In Bank Street the Community Stage will be packed with local school groups, theatre groups and dance troupes. The Christmas Market will also be on from 2pm – 5.30pm.

There will also be a light projection show in King St courtesy of Ayrshire College students and a snow globe in Foregate Square courtesy of the Burns Mall who have also invited Santa to visit them for the day.

We have the incredible Spark! illuminated drummers who will lead the Procession of Light in King Street at 4.15pm as we build up to the lights going on at 5pm.

The lights will be switched on by some local young carers who will hit the button to light up the town!
