Alex Lovell Lights up Christmas in Cirencester!
Alex Lovell got this year's Christmas in Cirencester event off to a tremendous start by coming to Cirencester to switch on the Christmas lights!
The press swooped in for a quick interview!
Alex was given a guided tour of the Christmas in Cirencester event by Cirencester Mayor Andy Lichnowski.
This year's market looks splendid with a great variety of traders offering a wonderful range of items.

After a miniscule delay (probably to prevent the rest of the town from being plunged into darkness) everything was beautifully lit:
This year's Chirstmas in Cirencester event has a stage for showcasing local talent:
Some of Alex's news reading chums came along too:
