THE ANNUAL Burley-in-Wharfedale Christmas Lights switch is happening this weekend.

The event, hosted this year, by BBC presenters Peter Levy and Paul Hudson will start at two o'clock, with the switch on happening at around four on Saturday, November 27.

There will be a Christmas market, craft fair, children's rides and as well as a visit from Santa.

Bradford Telegraph and Argus:

Event organiser, Tom Sumner said: "The now famous Burley in Wharfedale Christmas Lights are well worth a visit and as it is impossible to see all of them from the centre of the village. It is well worth a walk round as the lights extend the whole length of Main Street, all through the park and up Station Road.

"Some eagle eyed residents may well have spotted the new lights around the railway bridge too!

"Please come and enjoy yourselves and remember all the spectacular lights are put up by hard working volunteers who give their time and efforts to ensure Burley in Wharfedale Christmas Lights remain the best display in the area."

There will also be live music from Burley Oaks and Burley Woodhead local school choirs and the Ukelele Jammers.

The festivities culminate the 40th anniversary switch on.
