December 13th Christmas Light Switch On“There’s nothing better than turning on a light” is the famous quote from Alexander Graham Bell, discoverer of the modern light bulb. And by Jove he’s right, going by the record numbers who line the streets to watch the switch be taken on its 33m journey from the display in the museum to the tree in the plaza.

At 9.00pm exactly, the switch will be wired, by a certified electrician, to the string of 42 individual incandescent coloured bulbs representing those poor souls who were crushed to death at the previous year’s Globules Christmas Concert.

Guest to be confirmed
