Ormskirk Christmas Lights Switch On

Event, Local Info

Last weekend saw the annual Christmas Lights Switch On in the town centre. The streets around the famous clock tower were bustling with people from all over and it was a really great atmosphere. Famous faces from The Grinch to Elphaba from Wicked were also seen wondering around and engaging with the crowd.

The Night Markets

Ormskirk is famous for its market days on Thursdays and Saturdays. The market dates back to 1286, when the monks at nearby Burscough Priory were granted a Royal Charter by Edward 1. During the Christmas lights switch on, the markets are back! There were plenty of stalls from beer tents – selling mulled wine, mulled cider and lager – to jewellery stalls selling lovely Christmas gifts. It is definitely worth a wonder down next year to experience the atmosphere that Ormskirk has to offer.

The Show

Whilst we were having a look around the stalls, we were treated to carol singers, performers and also an ABBA tribute act! Hits from Gimme Gimme Gimme to Mama Mia really got the crowd moving and Moor Street really came to life.

Town Centre

With the annual event taking place right in the heart of Ormskirk, it is easily accessible when living with McComb. All the accommodation is within easy walking distance of the town centre, so it is really easy to get involved with all Ormskirk has to offer.

It is definitely worth putting in your diary for next year as the night is really one to remember!

Hi! I’m Alex Greenhalgh and I am a second year at Edge Hill University studying Primary Education with QTS, and yes, I know I’m mad for going into that profession… (I’ve heard all the jokes) but I am keen to make a difference to the lives of the next generation. When I am not in University I enjoy cooking, gaming and the university students’ staple pass time, ‘spoons. My interests will be reflected with my blogs as they will have a strong focus on cooking. I understand the struggles and the endless trawls through Aldi looking for the best bargains, so I want to pass on a few insights into how cooking can be fun, inexpensive and tasty! I really do hope you enjoy reading my blogs!
