THE FESTIVE season is now in full swing in Solihull town centre following the weekend’s spectacular light switch-on.
Thousands of people descended on the town centre for a day of seasonal wonders including real snow from snow machines, fantastic LED drummers, Christmas carols, festive cheer and Father Christmas himself.
