Concert rocks festive lights switch-on

Crowds on the Grand Parade

People travelled from all over to the Grand Parade in the city centre to enjoy the Festive Lights Switch-On event, which took place on Sunday November 26.

A free concert with local artists including Whitney April, The Rivertones and Allistair Izobel on the line-up led up to the switching on of the Adderley Street Christmas lights later.
