Queen Edith’s Christmas Lights Event, 11th December

Christmas Lights 2011

This year’s Christmas Lights event in Wulfstan Way promises to be extra-special.

As in the past two years, the Mayor of Cambridge will visit to turn on the Christmas Tree lights. Then there will be carols sung by the local church and school choirs.

This year, there’s an extra attraction. Netherhall students have been working with local artist Zoe Chamberlain since the summer on the 60-60 Jubilee Bench, which celebrates the past 60 years in the Wulfstan Way area, as seen through the memories of both older and younger generations. The Jubilee Bench will be unveiled as part of the festivities.

Father Christmas comes to Queen Edith’s: 6pm on the 6th

Schools, churches, councils, the police and fire service are coming together next Tuesday to celebrate Christmas outside the Wulfstan Way shops in Queen Edith’s.

There will be children’s craft activities (under 5s) from 5.30, then the Mayor of Cambridge, Cllr Ian Nimmo-Smith, will switch on the Christmas lights at 6 p.m. Next comes a community carol-singing, with special performances by the choirs of St James’s, St John’s and the Queen Edith Primary School.

It is hoped Father Christmas will come to join the fun.
