CELEBRATE Christmas early as a historic market town marks the start of the festive season with its light switch-on.

The event, organised by Wickham Parish Council, will take place in The Square in Wickham at 6.30pm on Wednesday, December 2.

Father Christmas will be arriving on his sleigh to turn on the lights, before making himself at home in a grotto at the King’s Head.

There will be late night shopping and refreshments to mark the occasion, as well as carols, a mini market and the Jungle Buddies playbus will be present.
