A dazzling display of lights will mark the start of the festive season when they're switched on in the town centre on Saturday.

The lights will be turned on by Norden Farm competition winner Zoe Hibbert, Kevin Cruise as his panto character Simple Simon from the Windsor Theatre Royal, and characters from Maidenhead's Desborough Theatre panto and Yorkie the Magpie, Maidenhead United FC's mascot.

The lights will be turned on outside Maidenhead Town Hall at 6pm.

Before the lights there will be performances from Next Stage Choir and Riser band.

A firework show will take place afterwards.

Road closures will be in place in Queen Street from its junction with Broadway, High Street, St Ives Road and the Colonnade from 11am.

On street parking will be suspended from midnight on Friday, November 25.

 There will also be free weekend parking beginning in Maidenhead from Saturday until the Christmas weekend.
