The biggest Christmas party in the North West will once again light up Albert Square – opening the doors to more than six weeks of festive celebrations and attractions. X Factor winner, James Arthur, and new pop-rockers, The Vamps, are this year’s headline acts to push the button at the Switch-On, in partnership with Key 103. 

Plus, there’ll be Faye Tozer of Steps fame, Joey, the life-size puppet horse of hit show War Horse and Ashleigh and Pudsey, the dog-trick duo and winners of Britain’s Got Talent, appearing with singing sensation Jodie Prenger, along with Manchester Show Choir and street dancers Rejetz. There will also be a 10-minute firework extravaganza - And best of all, it's free!  

Please note, once Albert Square reaches capacity access into the area will be restricted.
