Hull Christmas Lights Switch-On 2022

Hull’s Christmas Lights Switch-On 2022 took place last month at Hull City Hall within Queen Victoria Square. Thousands of people also braved the rain to watch Hull’s own Connor Lynes, star of the PDRL World Cup winning Rugby League team, switch on the lights this year.

DJ Darren Lethem hosted the event, who introduced a host of live performers on the night including;

  • Fascination
  • Gary Marsden
  • Dan Furniss
  • Serena Williams
  • Lillie Kerman
  • Venus

Father Christmas joined the line-up on the night, which also featured a firework display over Queen Victoria Square afterwards. The square came alive with stunning light and sound installations as the Christmas lights switched on across the city centre.

Deputy Lord Mayor, Cllr Kalvin Neal said; “The Christmas lights switch-on always draws a great crowd of people, ready to get the festive season started with a bang. I’m delighted to be joined by some very special guests to take part in the countdown and press the button with me and can’t wait to see Queen Victoria Square lit up looking its very best.”
