First Christmas light switch on revealed

It's that time of year again - Christmas is fast creeping up and it's time for the Christmas light switch on.

And this year All Saints have been announced at the headline act to turn the lights on at Cribbs Causeway.

The band will take to the stage at The Mall on November 10 to perform their biggest hits and flick the festive switch.

10,000 free tickets will be given away for the event, in exchange for a £2 suggested donation per head, with the money going to BBC Children in Need.

We’re very excited to welcome All Saints to The Mall! The event has drawn some big names to Bristol in previous years with Blue, The Saturdays, JLS and Olly Murs helping to raise a total of over £70,000 for charity.
