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.
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.
