Specsavers Whitstable is keeping the town bright for Christmas by sponsoring the annual Whitstable Christmas Light Switch On.

Lantern parade

The event, which takes place at 5pm on Saturday 28 November, will see a lantern parade leave the harbour and make its way to St Alphege Church where the lights will be switched on at 6pm.

Specsavers Whitstable store director, Siobhan Fennell said: ‘It’s great to be involved in such a popular event in Whitstable.

Christmas spirit

‘Last year there was over 3,000 attendees, so we’re keen this year to see even more people turn up to get into the Christmas spirit! The Whitstable Chamber of Commerce are the organisers behind the event and we’re proud to support them with our sponsorship.’
