Trowbridge will be getting well and truly into the festive spirit when Olympian Francesa Fox turns on this year’s Christmas lights outside the Town Hall on Friday at 6.30pm.

The 20-year-old rhythmic gymnast’s appearance will be one of many highlights of a fun-filled evening.

From 4pm, school choirs will be performing in Fore Street, to set the mood and characters in Victorian costumes will also be mingling in the town.

A road closure will be in operation between 6.15pm and 6.45pm in Silver Street and Market Street and following the switch-on there will be a carol concert being held in St James’ Church, in Union Street.
