On Wednesday 18th November, Lion Walk held our annual Christmas Light Switch On. Colchester’s Deputy Mayor, Nick Hope switched on the festive lights, followed by a dazzling firework display, bringing a big bang to the evening. Musical icon, Abbie Hartley took the stage, along with Theatretrain, who delivered a fun packed performance. Helen Connelly and the Colchester Institute also added buzz to the atmosphere with entrancing performances. To top the night off, Santa wowed the audience, practicing magic tricks with the aid of his trusty elves, who mingled amongst the crowd and showed off their eye catching juggling skills.
