East Leeds: Christmas lights bash for Kippax

Have your say

KIPPAX is preparing to kick off its official countdown to Christmas in style with a festive lights switch-on party on Thursday, November 26.

Entertainment on High Street will get under way at 6pm when Santa arrives in a car that has been kindly loaned for the occasion by Audi UK.

Dene Michael, the singer with cult 1980s party band Black Lace, will flick the all-important switch on the lights at 7.45pm.

The line-up for the eagerly-awaited event also includes The Bare Brass Band, Kippax Band and Brigshaw choir.

Santa will be available to say a friendly hello to young visitors in his grotto while the entertainers are on stage.
