Brenda Blackshaw, of the Lytham Christmas group which organised the event in conjunction with promoters Cuffe and Taylor, said: “It really was a very special afternoon - certainly the biggest and best switch-on event we have had.

“The entertainment was wonderful and we are so delighted that so many people came out to enjoy it and support the event.

“The run-up to Christmas really is a vital time for Lytham traders and we look forward to a successful season. The switch-on certainly got it off to he best possible start and we are grateful to everyone who helped make it possibly particularly Cuffe and Taylor, Lightpool and our sponsors.”
