Christmas Switch On

Lowestoft at 3:00 PM

Join Lowestoft Vision and the team from The Beach in Lowestoft town centre on Saturday December 1st from 3pm as we kick off the festive celebrations.

From 3pm The Beach Patrol team will be on stage with non stop entertainment for the Christmas Spectacular.

In the midst of the excitement those cheeky little elves have been causing mischief in the town and we need your help from 3pm - 4pm to find the four missing elves which have hidden themselves within Lowestoft shops. You can pick up an entry form from the Beach Patrol which will be located next to the stage in Lowestoft town centre, find the Elves and record their name on the entry form along with your details, then hand back into the beach Patrol and at 4pm the lucky winner will be selected at random and be this years star guest turning on the Christmas lights.

In addition we have an exciting schedule of entertainment on stage including the amazing Baden Aldridge who you may remember from the Summer’s Battle of the Buskers competition.


ALL Waveney District Council car parks surrounding the town centre will be offering free parking from 4pm-6pm.
