Linda John-Pierre, star in this year’s panto Jack and the Beanstalk, will be joining luminous ballerinas and other local talent at this year’s Christmas Switch On in Norwich.  

Back for the first time since 2019, this free family event will kick start the most wonderful time of the year as the city comes together to light up the streets of Norwich. 

Britain’s Got Talent star and Fairy Fullobeans in Norwich Theatre Royal’s Jack and the Beanstalk, Linda John-Pierre, will bring her amazing vocal talent to the stage before doing the honours of turning on the lights.  

Speaking about the appearance, Linda John-Pierre said: “I am honoured to be invited to be a part of Norwich’s festive celebrations. I am super excited to add a touch of Christmas magic and sparkle as Fairy Fullobeans turn the lights on. I hope to see you all there!” 

As part of Norwich Theatre’s new strategy, Creative Experiences, it is committed to supporting local people, communities, and the regional and cultural economies. We are proud to be a part of this year’s event and looking forward to counting down with everyone! 

As well as Fairy Fullobeans, don’t miss the enchanting ballerinas pirouetting from the stage, City Hall balconies and even around the crowd, with Framtastics Gymnastics also displaying their impressive skills. 

You will be able to enjoy live music from local band Austin Beats and even Father Christmas will be making a special appearance on stage, taking a brief moment out of his busy schedule to enjoy the night’s entertainment.  

Clare Hubery, Norwich City Council’s event and culture manager, said: “This magical line up promises to be a real treat for everyone attending the Christmas Switch On, and we are delighted to be able to showcase local talent and support festive performances happening in the city. 

“As well as putting on a free family event, it was also really important to us to increase the accessibility of our events, building on feedback from previous occasions, and we hope that this will mean even more residents can enjoy what’s on offer.” 

Festivities begin at 5.45pm, with the switch-on itself taking place at 7pm.
