The Stars Come Out for Petersfield Christmas Lights Switch On

Friday 14th November 2014

The Association of Petersfield Businesses (APB) is delighted to invite everyone in and around Petersfield to a Christmas Lights Switch-On event, the like of which has never been seen before in the town.

On Friday 14th November characters from the small and big screen will be visiting Petersfield to celebrate the launch of the Christmas season and help raise funds for the Dreams Come True charity based in Liphook.

Peppa Pig, The Gruffalo and Mouse will be here during the day to visit shops and meet fans young and old. From 5pm characters from Star Wars will be here to mingle with crowds in the Square and pose for pictures prior to throwing the switch to illuminate the Christmas tree.

"We are thrilled to be working with Dreams Come True again this year and look forward to welcoming this incredible cast of characters that support their wonderful work with children and young people, to Petersfield. I'm sure meeting Peppa Pig, The Gruffalo and Star Wars characters will make dreams come true for many of us, whatever our age." said Tracey Richardson, secretary of the APB.

Businesses are invited to make a donation to Dreams Come True which Peppa Pig, or The Gruffalo and Mouse will be delighted to collect between 10am and 4pm. A schedule will be published to ensure fans and customers can meet their favourites in the stores and have their picture taken. 

Please contact or call 07855 622123 to book your visit from the stars.      

From 5pm the Square will be the centre of activity, with rides and stalls with children as the focus and entertainment from the Choir Company to get everyone in the mood for the countdown to Lights-On, thanks to the power of visitors from a galaxy far, far away.
