Bestwood Park Church hosted the highly anticipated Christmas lights switch on for Bestwood on Thursday 26th November.

The popular event was hosted by Chris Easton and was joined onstage acts including Glade Hill Primary School, Southglade Primary, Robin Hood Primary, Top Valley Academy Choir, Oakwood Academy Choir, Top Valley Dance Academy and William the Wizard who gave their own performances with Christmas carols, dance and magic tricks.

After the official light switch on, the children even had the chance to meet Santa himself and his magical elves!

Chris Easton was happy with the attendance and those who took part in the event.

“Today has been a really excellent community wide event and it’s been great to see so many people from different backgrounds and ages come together. It’s been a fantastic opportunity to showcase the immense talent of the young people in the Bestwood Ward”.

Also in attendance was Right Track, Nottingham City Homes and Nottingham City Council who had their own stalls and offered the community support with their services.
