Marlow Town Council has confirmed that comedian, writer, actor and presenter Russell Brand will illuminate Marlow’s stunning Christmas lights display at this year's Switch on and Shop event on Thursday 23 November.

Snow machines will provide real snow from around 6pm as carol singers entertain shoppers taking advantage of later opening times. Local celebrity Russell Brand will flick the switch from the top deck of a London bus outside The Chequers pub in the High Street, lighting up the Christmas tree on the Causeway as well as the many smaller trees and garlands of lights around the town.

Shops will open late, and there will be special promotions, offers and Christmas displays throughout the town. Marlow FM and carol singers will be there to keep the Christmas spirit going.

The event starts at 6pm, with the High Street closed to traffic with effect from 5pm, with total closure of the High Street from 5.30pm to 7.30 pm for the switch-on ceremony, which will take place at approximately 6.30pm.

This is a Marlow Town Council event
