With Christmas two months away, the dates for the town's Christmas light switch-on have now been announced.

Last year, an estimated 8,000 people took to Windsor streets to see the town and castle light up in the run-up to Christmas.

This year locals will be able to see Winsor light up on Saturday, November 18.

Boasting a "majestic" backdrop of Windsor Castle, a programme of live entertainment throughout the day has been teased - but acts are still under wraps.

Last year, Theatre Royal Windsor took a key role, while performers from local groups also took the stage.

This year "carol singing and community stalls" will lead up to the Christmas light switch on.

Meanwhile, Eton will see the Christmas lights turned on two days earlier on Thursday, November 16.

Food stalls, funfair rides, music and dancing are set to take place, kicking things off at 5pm in Jubilee Square.

A Chapel service will then take place at 6pm followed by a Christmas procession with Father Christmas.
