Father Christmas will be bringing his magical touch to Hatfield town centre on Saturday, November 22.

He will be joined by Queen Elsa of Arendelle, from animated film Frozen, and Kieran Alleyne from CBBC’s Dani’s Castle to switch on the 2014 Christmas lights.

The princess and children’s TV favourite will flick the switch, but not before the entertainment gets underway from 2pm in White Lion Square.

Santa will be meeting and greeting children throughout the day in his grotto, so get there early to avoid disappointment.

Schoolchildren have been working on lanterns that will be paraded at the event.

There will also be street entertainers, live music, face painting and delicious festive food on offer.

Radio station Bob FM’s roadshow will roll in at 2pm, keeping the crowds entertained right through the afternoon, and introducing live music on the Hatfield Town Team’s stage.

Performers will include local singers Katy Crowley, Sam Taylor, Karl and the Prodigal Son, and carol singers, to name but a few.

Councillor Tony Kingsbury, chairman of the Town Team, said: “The Christmas lights switch on is the culmination of a fantastic year of events in Hatfield town centre.

“It would be great to see crowds as big as last year’s switch on in White Lion Square that Saturday.

“There will be lots of entertainment leading up to the big switch on, so I’d encourage the whole family to come along and join in the fun.”
