Bright lights, big city: Brighton lights up for Christmas

by Tom Irving, Lewis Jaffa and Charlotte Schroeter.

It's that time of the year again in Brighton as the Christmas lights were switched on tonight to herald the start of the holiday season. 

Juice 107.2 breakfast duo, Dan Gasser and Hanna Neter, turned on the largest seasonal display of lights on the south coast at an event packed with family fun. 

Juice 107.2 managing director, Lawrence Elphick, said: "We are delighted to be involved, the lights bring a lot of festive cheer to the community."

The lights were met with a positive reception despite missing the countdown and not all lighting up all at once. 

Anisha Chariania of Florence Road, Brighton, said: "The show was good. Shame the lights didn't come on at the same time. It put my kids and I in the Christmas vibe."

There was plenty of entertainment on offer including dancers, street entertainers and music. A performance from The Sleigh Belles topped the bill of acts, entertaining the crowd with an array of festive tunes. 

Eleanor Bell of Trafalgar Road, Portslade, said The Sleigh Belles were beautiful, alongside the fantastic lights. 

The 2 hour event was courtesy of Brilliant Brighton who represent over 500 businesses throughout the city.
