It has been confirmed that two of the Exeter Chief wingers, Olly Woodburn and Jack Nowell, will be switching on this year’s Christmas lights in the city centre.
The event is taking place on Thursday 16 November; entertainment will begin from 4pm, and the switch on itself is set to take place at 7pm.
Performances will be occurring from Jonah & The Superband, a Festive House Band, and Exeter Cathedral Choristers. Ann Hunter, InExeter and Exeter BID manager, has said of the event “Kick off your countdown to Christmas in the heart of Exeter as we celebrate an incredible evening filled with festive family fun.
“We’re delighted to have the Exeter Chiefs switch on our lights which will illuminate the whole city and thrilled that our Star InExeter competition winners will entertain the crowds with their uplifting music. It’s an evening not to be missed.”
