It’s that wonderful time of the year again. The Wombourne Christmas Light switch on is taking place on Friday, 1st December.

Here’s what’s going on that night for you to look forward to.

Switching on the lights

The Parish Council, we have organised the following:

  • Combined Schools Choir will be singing outside the front of the Civic Centre from 5.30pm
  • Mince pies will be handed out to the children who attend
  • Santa will be visiting on his sleigh (he is likely to do one lap of the village and then park up outside the Civic Centre)
  • There will be a countdown by the Parish Council Chairman at 6pm to the light switch on
  • Following the switch on there will be a short firework display

  1. Disappointed that there will be fireworks as that means we cannot see the stsrt of the choir as our dog will be too terrified . Im not the only dog owner who wont be able to attend as my dog will be traumatised under the bed for a few hours….

    • A short firework display is by no means harrowing.
      We have 4 dogs and plug in relaxing air fresheners do just fine with ours.
      They might use silent fireworks – how do you know?
      You can’t just expect loud fireworks and complain when you don’t know the details.

  2. This year we shall be opening the shop till later showing all our christmas Holly wreaths, door garlands and holly balls. We shall be running a raffle in aid of WINGS. Also any sales over £5 will earn a return voucher for January with a 10%off offer.

  3. Why don’t you ask Shaun walker (Elvis) to put the lights on who has lived in wombourne a long time and has a lot of followers

  4. Wombourne light switch on is always a prestigious event. The Vine is proud to announce that we have a live acoustic session from 9:30pm with Phil Short.
