Kick off the festive season in style and bring the whole family down to South Shields' Market Place, just outside The Word, to enjoy the amazing atmosphere as we switch on the Christmas lights!
Our special guests for the South Shields Christmas Lights Switch On event are the unmissable Jedward!
The energetic duo from Ireland have become household names since appearing on X Factor and were a huge hit when they last visited South Shields.
We look forward to welcoming them back for what will be a memorable performance and to join the Mayor of South Tyneside to switch on the festive lights!
The evening will also include a performance by the hugely talented Abi Garrido, street entertainers, and an appearance from characters from The Customs House pantomime, Beauty and the Beast. The evening will be hosted by BBC Newcastle's Alfie Joey.
So put the date in your diary as this is always a fantastic event, with music, street entertainers and lots of fun. It will certainly get you in the Christmas spirit!
The Switch On event is organised by South Tyneside Council and is part of our Christmas Wonderland programme of events. Many thanks to our media partner, BBC Newcastle, and our sponsors Colmans Seafood Temple.
