Wolverhampton’s Christmas Lights were switched on in Queen Square last night by panto favourites The Chuckle Brothers alongside Wolverhampton Wanderers players Dominic Iorfa & Kortney Hause, Wolverhampton’s Mayor and children’s television characters Flip & Bing.
The days proceedings kicked off early on with a market on Dudley Street which lasted into the night. Lichfield Street featured a mini fairground and further stalls, with the main entertainment in Queen Square where a temporary giant video screen had been installed above a stage. People from all over the city attended the switch on, which culminated in a firework display.Who says Wulfrunians are miserable? This picture tells a different story
Father Christmas’s reindeer was much admired on Lichfield Street
City of Wolverhampton Council will no doubt be pleased with the decision to switch the market back to Queen Square as the event was a success.
