Video highlights of the 2013 Burnham Christmas lights switch-on

Hundreds of people turned out to watch Burnham's world BMX champion Liam Phillips and BBC Somerset presenter Emma Britton switch on Burnham-On-Sea's Christmas lights today (Saturday).

The switch-on included an all-day outdoor Christmas street market and an afternoon of seasonal music and entertainment outside the Victoria Hotel in Victoria Street.

Organised by Burnham Chamber of Trade, the event included performances by St Andrew's School Choir, Coastline Singers, Curtain Call and Berrow Bells plus a special visit by Father Christmas, who arrived on one of Burnham's hovercrafts!

Burnham's Mayor Martin Cox, MP Tessa Munt and the town's Carnival Queen and Princess also gave their support.

The successful event was overseen by the Chamber of Trade with the support of Burnham Lions and Burnham Town Team and was compered by radio presenter Ian Burrage.
