The crowds flocked to Bramley Shopping Centre on Friday night for the annual Christmas lights switch on. Paul James Swain Photography was on hand to capture  some of the performances, fun and festivities - and fireworks - from the night. Here's a small selection of his photographs...

The festive season gets really under way in Bramley as the Christmas lights are switched on at Bramley Shopping Centre on Friday, 22 November 2019, writes Helen Garrand.

It’s an evening not to be missed, with a full programme of events starting at 5pm right through to 8pm to keep the whole family entertained. 

What’s more Ronnie the Rhino from Leeds Rhinos RLFC and Vodaphone’s Gigafast Rocket Boy will be dropping in to say ‘hello!’.

An evening packed with great entertainment includes Christmas carols sung by West Leeds SILC (Special Inclusive Learning Centre) Choir, dance with Dazl Explode from Dance Action Zone Leeds, songs from Rachel Crowe – all hosted by Flamingoland’s award-winning Ryan Swain and his puppets.

And the Christmas lights switch on is followed by a fireworks display.

Have fun and do your Christmas shopping with stalls include face painters, balloon modeller and Christmas crafts along with fairground rides.

And to round off the fun-filled evening the MIND Christmas Grotto opens its doors for children to meet Santa and enjoy a magical experience.
