The official countdown to Christmas starts in Gorleston with the annual lights switch-on.

This year festivities are on Sunday, November 26 starting off at noon with a street fair on the High Street.

The switch-on will be at 5pm and straight after there will be a performance by top Michael Jackson tribute act Fabio and then a fireworks display at 6pm.

Harbour Radio will be providing entertainment throughout the day.
Organiser Kevin Huggins of Fusion Salon on the High Street, encouraged people to come down and see what Gorleston has to offer.

He added: “Now we’re just hoping for some good weather.”

There will also be an ice rink by the Library which will cost £3.50 per go.”
