The date of the switch-on of the Christmas lights in Wigtown has been moved forward a week to Friday, November 24.

The original date was meant to be Friday, December 1, but it was decided to tie the switch on in with the weekend of the the Winter Kist and this year the switch-on also coincides with Wigtown’s Fire and Light Festival.
