Templars Square’s Christmas Light Switch On

By John Charlton

Cowley Shopping Centre, Templars Square switched on their Christmas lights at the weekend.

The event started at midday and carried on right through until 4pm, when Miss Oxfordshire International 2016, Sharon Gaffka, switched on the lights.

There was a whole host of events and activities to get everyone feeling festive. Children had the chance to meet Father Christmas, and receive a free present.

There were also appearances from Peppa Pig and George at intervals throughout the day.
A host of entertainers performed on the stage including the Churches Together Choir, Strawberry Fayre Majorettes, Jive Plus dancers, and the City of Oxford Silver Band.
