Yeovil Christmas Light Switch On
In partnership with Yeovil Art Space, EPS Yeovil, Yeovil Town Council and Quedam Shopping Centre the event will take place on Saturday 18th November in the Quedam Shopping Centre allowing more safe space for the public to gather and celebrate the start of Christmas in the heart of the town together.
Join together to switch on the town centre Christmas lights and illuminate the Christmas tree in the Quedam. With acts starting from 4.30pm there will be live music and dance from local and professional groups, family-friendly creative activities in Yeovil Art Space, seasonal delights at EPS Yeovil and a craft market offering you the chance to start your Christmas shopping early with local produce and hand made crafts from local artists.
The lights will be turned on at 6.30pm, highlighted by an interactive light sculpture ‘Light Hearted’, a large LED heart will only be lit up when two or more people hold hands. This striking and symbolic piece was created by digital media artist Gavin Morris, founder of The Digital Funfair, and has been staged across the UK, including Boomtown Festival and recently at Arts By the Sea Festival in Bournemouth.
The light switch on will be followed by a Silent Disco which is presented by EPS Yeovil and Yeovil Art Space as part of the Sound of Yeovil public programme for the Story of Yeovil Project. Guest DJs local to Yeovil will bring together three channels of music for all ages, including familiar songs, pop, reggae, drum & bass, techno and more…Tickets are £5 each, FREE for under 12 and over 65.
