Barrow is gearing up for its Christmas Lights Switch-On event, this coming Saturday (18th November).

The annual event will see performances from local musicians and fundraising efforts for local charities.

The Bay's Darren Milby will also be broadcasting live from the event.

A variety of acts will take to the stage including local artists Beth Horan, Denis Horan, Cora May Brennan, Tiffany Southward as Taylor Swift, Louis Kelly Chris Campbell, Abbie Clarke, Yvonne Patterson, Shine Theatre Company, South Lakes Rock School Choir and the Cinderella Panto Cast.

Kevin Simm - the winner of The Voice 2016 will also be there.
 
The event is sponsored by Orsted (The new name for Dong Energy), INS (International Nuclear Services), and Barrow BID.

Phil Collier is the manager of Barrow's Business Improvement District.

He said: "I think it's a real feel-good factor for the town and we are very very supportive in driving this journey that the town centre is on.

"There's a reason for people to come into the town centre and hopefully stay in town and do some shopping.

"Hopefully the day will be a big success and will grow year on year.

"If we can do that and make it become bigger and better, we can make sure it can become much more integrated into the town centre itself."
