BBC Radio Devon will be broadcasting live from the South Molton Christmas light switch on.

South Molton will be hosting its first ever official Christmas Lights Switch On event on Friday, November 27 – and it promises a fantastic family time.

Join BBC Radio Devon on the Square from 5pm for an evening of festive fun.

Host Matt Woodley will be broadcasting his drivetime show live from the town, and there will be plenty of giveaways during the event as well as interviews with well-known local people.

At around 6pm the town band will be playing festive music in the Square, ready for the big switch-on at 6.15pm by former Radio 1 DJ Simon Bates, North Devon MP Peter Heaton-Jones and the mayor, Dave Goodman.
