Extra Christmas cheer for Burnham-On-Sea's streets this year!

Burnham-On-Sea's streets will have an extra dose of festive sparkle this Christmas season thanks to the town's Chamber of Trade.

For the first time in more than five years, extra wall-mounted lights will be switched on along Victoria Street in addition to the 33 lights along Burnham's High Street.

Last year's Burnham Christmas lights switch-onChamber of Trade spokesman Alex Turco told Burnham-On-Sea.com that £1,000 is being spent on the brand new wall-mounted lights.

"They will be attached to properties all along the street and will be similar in style and colour to the ones we currently have," he said.

Burnham-On-Sea Mayor Eric Gill is scheduled to switch on the lights in a ceremony at 4.30pm on Saturday November 26th.

The event will take place outside the Somerset & Dorset Pub and will be preceded by entertainment from 4pm.

Jugglers, musicians and street entertainers will be on hand. And members of local drama group Curtain Call will sing a range of carols and festive songs.

Santa Claus is also expected to drop in to hand out goodies to children and onlookers.
