Flemingate Christmas 1

Plans for this year’s Christmas lights switch-on at Beverley’s Flemingate centre include a special guest, a choir, a Nordic tipi bar and a fantastic firework finale.

The exciting event takes place on Friday, November, 23, and will see a special guest switch on the Christmas lights, followed by a dazzling firework display which promises to be bigger and better than last year.

Jo Bridgeman, Flemingate Marketing and Events Manager, said: “Last year’s Christmas lights switch-on was incredibly popular with thousands turning out to enjoy the event and fireworks.

“This year’s event will be bigger and better with more lights, more fireworks and a special guest to flick the switch.

“Our shops are also opening late, so visitors can make a start on the Christmas shopping too. 

“We have a few other surprises lined up which will be revealed nearer the date. We’re very excited about it!”   

Visitors will be able to enjoy a festive tipple and roaring log fires in the cosy tipi bar, Bartipi, which returns to Flemingate for a second year.  

The evening of family entertainment will also see a return to Flemingate for Beverley’s Remarkable Rock Choir, who are guaranteed to get the crowds dancing and singing along to festive rock classics.

The Flemingate Christmas lights switch-on event begins at 6pm and is due to end at 8pm.

Late night shopping is until 9pm and Flemingate’s bars and restaurants are open as normal.

Parking in the 500-space car park is just £1 for three hours.
