Last night was the Switch On of the Christmas Lights in Swindon Old Town. I had a lot of fun photographing Simon Wegryzn who plays Fleshcreep in this years Panto Jack and the Beanstalk at The Wyvern Theatre. Not only was he a really nice guy he was so easy to direct and was really happy to do anything I asked of him. I am really looking forward to seeing him and the rest of the cast at the Panto over Christmas.
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.
