All three will be performing at this years Ely Christmas Lights Switch On on December 1st.

Although Steve the Juggler is, in fact, real, Abba will be there in the form of leading tribute act “Abbababes” from Norwich and “Nelson” will be reliving some of George Michaels most significant numbers.

For 14 years, Ely has each year put on a switch on the event which has grown in both size and popularity. The Switch On is organised by the City of Ely Council and a group of small dedicated volunteers whose planning starts very early on in the year.

The main act is currently under wraps but other performers to appear on the evening include KD Theatre who are rehearsing for the annual pantomime at the Maltings and Octagon Dance Studios.

Santa will also there in the Switch On Parade arriving by horse-drawn carriage and kids can visit him at his grotto down Forehill.

The festivities which cover the whole city centre including Forehill starts at 4:30pm and be sure to look out for Minnie and Mickey Mouse as well as Olaf from Frozen.
