Light Up Christmas!


With the recent confirmation that part of Skegness tradition will be lost in the form of the Christmas Switch On NOT being held this year, we have leapt into action and instructed our event planners to create an event which will enable everyone from Skegness and the surrounding areas a chance to come together and celebrate the season.

Light Up Christmas is a totally privately funded event created for Skegness and will see our frontage on Skegness prom come alive with entertainment, sparkle with fireworks and culminate in a celebrity switch on of the Hives 20ft Christmas tree.

Host Nathan Black will be making sure the events live entertainment goes with a bang. Joining him to celebrate the night will be a choir from the Janice Sutton theatre school, live entertainment from local favourite Sarah and her dancers, a frozen princess will be dropping in for a singalong with her friends and the cast of 7 visitors from Snow White and the the Skegness (Neverland) Panto will be invading the stage!

We are excited to be welcoming back Skeggy favourite and X factor star Chico who has switched on the summer illuminations in the past and will be performing live on stage.

Oh did we forget .. Santa will be landing on our roof to join the celebrations and to meet some lucky children.

Starting the countdown and switching The Hive illuminations is Mega Soap and strictly star Jake Woods.

We are aware of what the loss of the switch on this year has meant to Skegness, with families and loved ones coming together on that day to celebrate the season so we thought it was only right that we upheld the tradition by creating our own event to fill the gap for this year.

The event will start from 5pm on the 27th after the Christmas market, so round up your nearest and dearest and join Skegness celebrate this very special time of year.
