Christmas light switch on Important Event Update

Due to the predicted weather forecast of strong winds and heavy rain, we are having to make some changes to the light switch on.

  • The Lantern Display will be postponed – we are inviting all community members who were taking part to join us for the “Cornish Yule Tide Afternoon” at Kresen Kernow on 10th December 1pm until 3pm.
  • The Christmas lights will still be switched at 5.30pm on the 26th of November, to mark the beginning of the festive season. As we know many will not want to be out in the bad weather, this will be live streamed and we will be creating a film to go on the website and social media – we ask everyone to share the video far and wide so we can reach as many people as possible! The “switch on” will be taking place in the foyer of Redruth Library so unfortunately, we will not have space for people to gather.
  • The festive market will still be taking place (11am until 5pm) but all traders will be moved indoors including Market Hall and The Buttermarket.
  • Please continue to support local businesses where you can.
  • The Wassail and Mummers play is still taking place, but will be moved in to The Buttermarket/Market Hall before they begin the procession. They will begin from 4pm.
  • Redruth Carol Choir will be singing the traditional Cornish Carols alongside the Wassail also from 4pm in The Buttermarket/Market Hall.

Don’t forget we have our Festive Saturday’s throughout December we look forward to seeing you there.
