Christmas lights switch on event in Brentwood tomorrow

Lighting up Brentwood will take place in the town centre tomorrow.

The Christmas event will include dancers, music, stalls, festive sprites, a giant snow globe, and small fairground rides.

There will also be stalls and attractions in Crown Street and the Baytree Centre.

The High Street will be closed to traffic from 8am to 8pm, with the event starting at 12pm.

The road closure will affect buses, so two temporary bus-stops will be set up in William Hunter Way - outside Sainsbury’s and behind the Dreams Superstore.
