On a freezing cold night several local celebrities came out to switch on the Swindon Old Town Christmas Lights. These included Mayor Mick Bray, Jo Ingles the TV Vet, Jonas Hogg and Ryan Aldrige of the Swindon Wildcats, Laura Varnham as Princess Jasmine from the panto Aladdin, a number of players from Swindon Town Football Club. The show was compared by Ben Atkinson from JackFM. On stage entertainment was provided by the Tanwood Dancers and off stage amongst others the Wroughton Silver Band. There was a really good turn out with Wood street and the surrounded area packed with revellers.
