About The Big Barrhead Christmas Lights Switch On

On Saturday 2 December, Barrhead will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland as we begin the countdown to Christmas with the annual Big Barrhead Christmas Lights Switch On!

We will start the day with a Santa Parade at 12noon, following him as he leaves the stage at Asda towards his Grotto on Cochrane St, where he will stay for the remainder of the day, welcoming children to tell him what they've wished for and maybe even giving them a present too! (Please note, visits to Santa cost £3 and all proceeds will go to local good causes).

You will also be able to take in the Christmas Market, funfair rides and more at the square outside Asda, enjoying live music and entertainment presented by our friends at Pulse Community Radio.

We will bring an end to the festivities with a fantastic firework display to light up the Barrhead sky!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Big Barrhead Christmas Lights Switch On are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
