Christmas is back and there’s no better way to kick off the festivities than by coming along to Morpeth’s Christmas Light Switch On.
This very Merry Morpeth Christmas has it all! From free fairground rides, delicious street food, festive live performances and a visit from the big man himself! Join the town for Christmas fun on Saturday 18th November from 11.30am to 6pm.
Here is your Merry Morpeth breakdown:
Bridge Street will kick off the celebrations with a stage, a snow globe photo opportunity as well as Rutherford & Co’s Christmas Window reveal. The window reveal will take place at 3:30pm.
Market Place will be accompanied with the following traders:
The Gourmet Burger Van
Gin & Tonia
The live music stage will be next to the Town Hall with these performances going on throughout the day:

The light switch on will be done by Mr Claus and the Mayor with another lucky individual who has won the Christmas Card competition. The magical day will end with the switching on of Morpeth’s Christmas lights at 5pm and the Ellington Colliery Band will play us out as the town prepares for another wonderful festive season.
Merry Morpeth Christmas only begins here! The Pavilion will be accompanied with a tipi over November and December for people to come along and enjoy warm mulled wine and cider under the stars in Carlisle Park.
The Big Morpeth Christmas Trail will also be on with a scavenger hunt to win a luxury hamper made up of spectacular gifts you can get around Morpeth businesses. Head around the town centre and keep a keen eye on shop windows that have a Christmas question or a small elf. See our Christmas Trail page for more info.
Make sure to pick up your Christmas map at the Pavilion or participating businesses.
