Revised schedule for Castletown Christmas light on


Events like the Castletown Christmas light coming on give kids something to look forward to and enjoy.

That’s the message from Nathan Rogers of the Castletown Christmas Committee.

In a social media post, Castletown commissioners say they are aware that a number of events have been called off around the island following the recent Covid briefing.

However, the council would like to reiterate that the Christmas light comes on tomorrow (December 4) – with safety at the forefront of the council’s mind – mitigation measures such as face masks and disinfectant for hands will be available.

Speaking to 3FM, Rogers explained that people will be encouraged to follow whatever precautions they feel most comfortable with, whether it’s social distancing or watching the festivities from afar. .

He also clarified that making sure the event takes place outdoors was a top priority:

Market stalls will be set up in Castletown Square from 2pm, with the “Santa Dash” taking place at 3:30 pm.

Local choirs and artists will also perform later in the afternoon with the main switch at 6 p.m. and Santa Claus in his cave.

Mr. Rogers explained why it’s so important that events like this always happen:

The full program is as follows:

3:30 p.m. – Santa Dash

4:00 p.m. – CRHS Choir

4:30 p.m. – Spinnin ‘Vannin

5:00 p.m. Jack and the Beanstalk

5:15 p.m. Snow Queen followed by Castletown Silver Band

5:40 p.m. Service Carol

6:00 p.m. Start-up

6.05 Santa Claus Cave and Tractors
