West End Christmas Lights Switch On tonight!

Tonight will see the West End Christmas Lights in Dundee switched on at 7pm by Lord Provost John Letford, Ken Macleod of Radio Tay AM and characters from Downfield Musical Society’s Christmas Panto “Dick Whittington”.

It will take place at Seabraes (just east of Roseangle, opposite Airlie Place).

There will be a Christmas children’s concert beforehand from 6pm, in which musical contributions from Harris Academy, Menzieshill High School and local primary schools will take place. Guest singer is Sheena Wellington, Scotland's leading traditional singer. All residents are welcome to attend this free event which takes place in Dundee West Church, 132 Perth Road.

After the Christmas Lights are switched on, there will be a spectacular fireworks display plus a carnival from Horne’s Carnivals.

This is the largest West End Christmas Week yet and we are indebted to the local businesses in the West End who have helped make this all happen. We hope that residents will come along to the concert, lights switch on, fireworks and carnival and support this excellent community event.
