Creative Quarter Christmas Lights Switch-on


The Old High Street | Friday 15 November, 5.30pm

Dig out your festive jumper, get Buble back on your playlist and join us for the Creative Quarter Christmas lights switch-on!

What better way to kick off the festive season in Folkestone's Creative Quarter, than with an evening of light, song and cheer. We're delighted to be joined by Booker Prize-winning author Ben Okri, who will be counting us down to the big switch-on and launch of this year's Book Festival.

To get you in the festive spirit, local choirs and bands will be bringing the streets to life with song; our creative businessses will be stunning crowds with their Christmas window displays; and shops will have extended opening hours - perfect for a spot of Christmas shopping!

Ben Okri will also be speaking at Quarterhouse after the lights switch-on. Find out more here.
