Ken Harrison, of Brigg Matters Magazine, took these fine pictures at the Christmas lights switch-on ceremony, District Lions' Fair and late night shopping evening on Friday, November 30, 2018. He has very kindly shared them with Brigg Blog.
They show Scunthorpe pantomime stars, including Annie Fanny, who entertained the sizeable crowd before the illuminations came on, local school choristers, staff from Brigg businesses, Santa and people of all ages who enjoyed this major spectator event.
Watch out for coverage in the next issue of the community magazine.
