Manchester Christmas Lights Switch-on
Manchester marks the festive season's arrival with the switching on of the city's Christmas lights and two hours of entertainment for the enthusiastic crowds in Albert Square. The event is seen by many as the official beginning of Christmas.
Every year a celebrity guest switches on the lights and entertainment is provided by local bands and artists, with live music and mass sing-alongs ensuring a warm atmosphere whatever the weather.
For added Christmas cheer, local stalls sell flashing lights and festive treats, and it's customary for a massive fireworks display to signal the end of the evening's celebrations with a bang.
