Durham City Christmas Light Switch On

Durham Market Place


Join us in the Market Place for our spectacular Christmas Lights Switch On. Taking place on Friday 30thNovember 2018 between 5.45pm and 6.30pm, this year’s extravaganza will be an immersive experience for all the senses (and family to enjoy too)!


Re-telling the much-loved story of The Nutcracker in a circus-style performance reminiscent of The Greatest Showman, with the story brought to life through music, live action and death-defying stunts – all culminating in the breath-taking finale with the lighting of the Christmas tree.


We’re expecting lots of people to fill the Market Place once again for this much-loved family tradition, so it’s best to arrive early and claim your spot, as the show will start prompt at 5.45pm and we’d hate for you to miss out on the spectacular!
