It’s that busy time of year ………….Christmas Light Switch On’s!

The Lightmedia team get into the Festive spirit as they provide LED Screens all over the UK – lighting up cities from Scotland-London!

The first Christmas Light Switch on of the year was for Manchester City Council! Lightmedia were delighted to support their Christmas Lights Switch on Event in Albert Square which took place on Saturday 3rd November 2018!

What an amazing night it was with performances from Jonas Blue, Max George, the cast from Wicked, Dr Doolittle and The Producers. And what a Grand Finale with a huge firework display which lasted approximately 10 minutes.

Manchester Show Choir opened the event with a traditional Christmas theme, followed by the amazing Dance Academy.

Jonas Blue headlined the free switch on show before pushing the button to light up the city!
Thousands of people attended the Free Event in Manchester and hundreds arrived early to get prime positions at the front.
