Thousands turn out for NUL Christmas Lights Event

Thousands brave the cold to see Newcastle Christmas lights switched on in a day of festive fun

Thousands of people braved the cold to attend a festive day of fun in Newcastle – and to see the town’s Christmas lights being switched on. There was plenty of attractions for everyone, including Santa in his grotto, stalls, a funfair, fireworks and lots of food and drink. The switch-on was organised by BID. (Photographs: Malcolm Hart)
