Tameside Christmas Lights Switch On Dates 2013
Are the dark nights getting you down? Don’t worry. Before you know it the November gloom will have been dispelled by some festive magic.
Cllr Jackie Lane, Assistant Executive Member for Heritage and Tourism, said: “These are family events that will be enjoyed by kids of all ages, and adults too. Once the lights go on they make the dark nights much more bearable and the children know that it won’t be long until Christmas is here.”
