The Crewe Christmas lights switch-on took place on the town square in front of hundreds of excited families.

There was entertainment from Shavington-based jazz musician Tom Seals and Katy Perry tribute K T Perry.

Father Christmas also took time out of his busy schedule to make an appearance last night (November 28).

Mayor of Crewe Cllr Irene Faseyi, assisted by K T Perry, turned on the Christmas lights.

This was followed by a firework display by local company Blitz Fireworks, with rockets launched from the roof of the Crewe Town Clock.

K T Perry sang “Firework” during the display.

There were also children’s fairground rides, a candy floss stall and a large outdoor market. Hundreds of local adults and children attended the event.

The switch-on also marked the start of late-night shopping in Crewe over the festive period.

  1. It is always nice to know that however much the local council is undergoing financial hardship, there is always money for this sort of stuff. Perhaps it’s a sign that the council’s problems are over and we can look forward to cuts in services being restored and reductions in our council tax. No harm in optimism.
