Jason Manford

Comedian Jason Manford will be kick-starting the festive season by switching on Rhyl’s Christmas lights this month.

The much loved comedian, singer and television presenter will be switching on the town’s Christmas lights on the High Street in Rhyl on Saturday 27th November between 4pm and 6pm.

Entertaining the crowds will be a 6ft Glowbot, Co-Creative performance company, face painting, balloon modelling and the night will finish on a bang with a fireworks finale.

Also on stage entertaining the crowd will be Mike Andrew as Robbie Williams and the wonderful Gem Johnson.

Jason Manford said: “I can’t wait to come to Rhyl, it’s a great place to perform and there’s always an amazing atmosphere. The light switch on will start the Christmas festivities and I’m honoured to have been invited this year. See you there!”

Jamie Groves, Managing Director of Denbighshire Leisure Ltd, said: “We are delighted to have secured such a great line up at the light switch on this year, it has long been established as a way of kick starting the Christmas celebrations. We would encourage people to join in with the activities and come get into the festive spirit with Denbighshire Leisure Ltd and Rhyl Town Council.”

Rhyl mayor Cllr Diane King said: “We are so pleased to be able to support this year’s Christmas lights switch on. A highlight in the town’s events calendar, we really missed the lights switch on last year. But we’re back with a sparkle and looking forward to welcoming Jason Manford to Rhyl to start off the festivities ahead of his performance at the Pavilion.”
