Ben Langley, comedian, writer and performer, best known as a finalist in Britain’s Got Talent 2018, and shortly starring as Wishee Washee in Aladdin at Norwich Theatre Royal, will officially switch on the lights on the Christmas tree and around town at 6.20pm. On stage to help him will be Beth Goodswen of JD Young in Harleston, who have sponsored this year’s Christmas tree. From 4pm The Thoroughfare will be closed to traffic but many shops will stay open late as families come to enjoy children’s rides and other entertainments. There will be an inflatable Snow Globe, ideal for family photos as well as letting off steam, traditional street organ, fire-juggling performance from The Thundermentals and The Grinch will be trying to spread mayhem. From 5.30pm players from the East of England Cooperative Society Brass Band will play lots of familiar and seasonal tunes.
