THE highlight of the festive period is nearly upon us with the whole town excited about the Thame Christmas lights switch-on.
This year EastEnders star Gillian Wright, who plays Jean Slater in the BBC soap, will be doing the honours while a series of musical talents, including Elton John tribute act Ultimate Elton, will be entertaining onlookers.
Last year’s popular skate rink returns and from 3pm there will be a dry ski slope.
The evening activities will get under way from 6pm with carols from nearby schools, accompanied by the Thame Concert Band, the Thame’s Got Talent winners and performances from Cinderella by the Thame Players.
Parking will be available at the Co-op, Upper High Street and the Cattlemarket.
