Exeter Christmas Lights!



Join Radio Exe and our friends at InExeter for the city's Christmas lights switch on event with a huge party for all the family to enjoy taking place in Princesshay Square on Thursday 16 November.


As well as live music from local musicians, the evening will mark the official switching on of Exeter’s city-wide festive illuminations and kick off the first of six Thursdays leading up to Christmas, when shops will stay open until late. Celebrations start from 4pm on the Thursday when local school children will give a festive performance of traditional carols followed by a timetable of live music and family friendly entertainment. The evening will be hosted by our very own Ben Clark and Ashley Jeary.
