The Christmas lights in South Molton are being switched this evening at 6:15 by Simon Bates. The big switch-on will be followed by a spectacular fireworks display at 6:55 in the Central Park.
There will also be craft stalls in the Pannier Market along with a blow-up pub (!), a pop-up Indian takeaway, a hog roast etc.
BCC Radio Devon will be broadcasting the event live from 5:00 to 7:00.
Andrew Coates, the town clerk, was interviewed on Radio Devon earlier today and the clip can be heard here:
