Walking with the Snowman Trail Launch & MediaCityUK Christmas Lights Switch On

22nd November 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm


The Snowman will switch on MediaCityUK’s first official Christmas Lights Switch On! 

Join us on the 22nd of November from 5pm for a festive evening of entertainment, great food, and Christmas drinks.

Hosted by the BBC’s legendary Mike Bushell, you’ll be entertained with a stellar line up of local community groups such as Salford Steel and Reflections dance troop. The MediaCityUK Christmas lights will be turned on by the Snowman at 6.30pm.

Organised in partnership with Wild in Art, the Christmas Light Switch On event will also see the launch of the Walking with the Snowman Trail, a wintery walk around MediaCityUK to mark the 40th anniversary of Raymond Briggs’ heart-warming tale, The Snowman. The Snowman sculptures will be waiting to be discovered on this family-friendly trail. Snowman fans out there can also meet and greet the famous character.

Supported by our local retailers, you’ll be met with numerous discounts at our bars and restaurants on-site so there’s plenty to sink your teeth into for the evening.
