Market Square's Big Switch On

    Cambridge Market Square Christmas Lights

    The Big Christmas Lights Switch On takes place on Sunday 17th November and Cambridge BID and Cambridge Independent invite you to join in the fun and festivities.

    The annual Big Switch On sponsored by Cambridge Independent, kicks off Christmas season this year with Star Radio taking control of stage, promising to entertain the crowds from midday. There will be a lively line up from local schools, performing arts clubs, choirs and more.

    This year we have a real treat, as The Rock Choir will be performing and want you to sing along! 

    This year Star Radio and Cambridge BID have been searching for your star to turn on the Christmas Lights. Running a competition on air and online, you were asked to nominate your local hero to flick that all important switch. Come along to the Market Square to see who the lucky winner is...
