Diary date: Bramley Christmas Lights 2017 switch on announced

The official date of Bramley Christmas lights switch-on 2017 has been announced – and organisers are promising it’s going to be the biggest and best yet!

Bramley will light up on November 24, with Bramley Shopping Centre being taken over for the celebrations.

Entertainment will be provided by Whitecote Primary School choir, Leeds West Academy cheerleaders, puppeteer Ryan Swaine will be compere, and there will be music from the Bramley Lawn ukulele group.

Ashley Golding and Jordan Lilley will be present from Leeds Rhinos, accompanied by none other than Ronnie the Rhino. Bramley’s own Kerry Cromack, who appeared on TV’s The Voice last year, will also sing.

As well as the usual funfair and Santa’s Grotto by the British Heart Foundation, there will also be live reindeer and ponies, and fireworks after the 7pm switch-on.

The Christmas Lights switch-on is put together each year by the Bramley Lights Project, a small group of residents, local councillors, Bramley Shopping Centre management and the Heart Foundation.

One of the organisers, Bramley resident Helen Garrand, said she started the project six years ago with her late partner. She said:

“We started with just £440 and had just two weeks to do it – we did it though and had 3,500 people there!”

Supporters include the council’s Inner West Community Committee, Stanningley Cars, Pure Gym, First Bus and Bramley Shopping Centre.
