Market Cross lights up for Christmas
Crowds of people turned out in Selby on Friday evening (December 22nd) to celebrate the Christmas Lights Switch On at Market Cross.
There was traditional Christmas music from Georgie Harrison and Lizy and The Crescendos followed by festive carols from local choir, the Hemmingbirds.
The stunning lights display was turned on by lucky competition winner Freddy Randall Miles age eight, from Selby along with Disney Frozen’s Elsa.
The lucky youngster also received a luxury Christmas hamper filled with everything the family will need for Christmas day.
Free mince pies courtesy of Cooplands were handed out to shoppers who were enjoying the festive atmosphere accompanied by a giant swan princess on stilts – paying tribute to the Abbey’s 950 celebrations which also took place that evening.
Alison Shipperbottom from the Market Cross team said: “We were delighted to see so many people turn out to celebrate the official start to Christmas.
“We’ve had so many lovely comments about how nice the lights look and it was great to join in with the spectacular Illumination light show held at the Abbey.”
