The One Maidstone Secret Switch On goes live this Thursday, 19th November!
Despite current circumstances, Maidstone town centre will still have Christmas lights displayed from November 2020, and will celebrate with an alternative online project, thanks to the One Maidstone Business Improvement District.
Determined not to let the occasion go unmarked, One Maidstone announced the Secret Switch On, a pre-recorded and socially distanced hour long concert film going online on the evening our traditional lights switch on show would have taken place.
Performances from local singers and dancers have been filmed in high profile venues around the town centre, out of hours and without an audience, to be combined to create an evening of entertainment.
The One Maidstone Business Improvement District took on provision of Christmas lights installation and accompanying switch on event for the first time in 2019, after Maidstone Borough Council were unable to put on the event in 2018. The reinstated event in Jubilee Square was attended by an estimated 4-5k people.
The One Maidstone Business Improvement District is funded by town centre businesses, and serves town centre businesses.
