Guess who’s coming to see the Helensburgh lights this year….
In addition to fundraising, putting up all the Christmas lights and decorating the town’s impressive Christmas tree, Helensburgh’s volunteer elves are thrilled to announce they have planned a very special Switch On Event to launch the start of the town’s 2022 festive season.
This year, Santa and all our usual Christmas friends will be joined by a very special visitor, all the way from Darkest Peru via London – yes Paddington™ is coming to join in Helensburgh’s Christmas celebrations and watch the town light up.
Paddington will be making appearances at intervals throughout the day and the elves will make sure there are plenty of marmalade sandwiches and hot chocolate for when he takes his breaks. He will meet and greet, so bring your cameras, and no doubt be very interested to see everything that will be happening in the square as Helensburgh once again comes together to switch on the “Best Lights in the West”.
