TV and film star Warwick Davis to switch on Grand Arcade's Christmas lights
The Grand Arcade in Cambridge will mark the start of the festive season with the help of some very special guests, including actor Warwick Davis.
At 4pm on Sunday, November 17, the shopping centre will be switching on its Christmas lights in the presence of BBC Radio Cambridgeshire’s Jeremy Sallis, who will be there to present an afternoon of entertainment. A host of choirs and musicians will be performing from 12pm, including Vocal Remix, the Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts students, and St Mary’s School’s Chamber Choir.
The Cambridge Theatre Company will perform a medley of songs from its Christmas show, Hairspray, and the ever-popular Rock Choir will be doing the final build-up to 4pm.
“I can’t wait for this year’s Christmas lights switch on and see so many smiling and happy faces from across the city,” said Jeremy. “It promises to be bigger and better than ever with exceptional, local talent performing all afternoon and a Hollywood star on stage for the countdown.”
Actor and producer Warwick will also support the charity Little People UK, who raise funds to promote positivity – and provide support – for people with dwarfism.
Grand Arcade’s stores will be open with many serving mince pies and festive drinks.
