Swansea Christmas Lights Switch On

Swansea Christmas Lights Switch On

Start Date: 18-11-2018
End Date: 18-11-2018

The countdown to Christmas officially starts in Swansea city centre with an extravaganza of colour, music, dancing and the famous festive lights switch-on all under the gaze of Santa himself.

Santa’s Time Travelling Adventure lands in Swansea City Centre - jam-packed with dynamic dance troupes, stupefying show stops and stages, and entertainment with new technology that is out of this world… transporting the people of Swansea through the past, present and future…

Hold on tight… it’s time for a great adventure

This year there’s no more standing around waiting for the procession to come past – we’ve got magical entertainment all along the route to keep you warmed up while waiting for Santa!

All the pre-event fun will begin at 4pm with music, dancing and much more around the City Centre and on our eight stages along the route


The Route

There’s a brand new route for 2018, with the procession starting at Princess Way, onwards to Caer Street and College Street before ending on The Kingsway. This year Santa’s got something a little bit special in store too, as there are also FOUR Show Stopper Stages at St. Mary’s Church, Swansea Castle, and one at each end of the Kingsway.

Starting at 5pm, Santa and the jam packed procession will makes its way from Princess way to the first Show Stopper Stage – get ready, as he’ll stop here for some live entertainment with dynamic dance troupes, musicians, amazing lights and special effects and much more. All this before the lights in that area get switched on!

That’s right, this year nobody misses the famous Christmas Lights Switch On – the City Centre Christmas lights will be switched on in sections from each show stopper stage!

After the lights around St. Mary’s and Princess Way are switched on, Santa and the procession will continue onto the next three show stopper stages for the same amazing show. No matter where you wait to see Santa this year, you’ll see the same great show and see the lights switched on! With four stages to choose from, all with the same great entertainment, you can wait for Santa at the one that suits you.
