Diss Christmas Lights Switch-On

Despite strong winds and freezing rain, hundreds gathered in the centre of Diss on Saturday 27th November to celebrate the town’s annual Christmas lights switch-on. Read our press release from the event.

And they were in good company. Town Mayor Eric Taylor, local celebrity Ben Langley, Diss Corn Hall panto stars Snow White and Nurse Fanny, and the big man himself, Father Christmas, all ventured out into the cold to light up the town.
