To quote the start of Alan Carr’s Chatty Man TV show, “What a week it’s been”.
It has been all about switching on the Christmas lights across Kent.
Last Friday, Emma Adam and Garry Wilson lit up Jubilee Square in Maidstone, kmfm Breakfast’s Rob and Emma entertained Ashford town centre before switching on the lights and Emma Adam and a massive crowd counted down in unison in West Malling.
We haven’t finished yet!
This Thursday Rob and Emma will be switching on the Christmas lights at Fremlin Walk, Maidstone.
See Santa and his reindeer and children will be able to have their faces painted too.
Big kids are welcome to don the make-up.
Why not, it is Christmas. Rob and Emma will be joined by Rugby star and Celebrity MasterChef winner Phil Vickery and the X Factor stars who got to judges’ houses with Gary Barlow – Brick City.
There is also the chance to win a trip to Lapland.
It all happens between 4-9pm.
Then this Saturday, November 23, Rob and Emma will be at Hempstead Valley to open their Christmas Grotto.
Children can write letters to Father Christmas and receive replies and Frosty the Snowman will be handing out free goodies.
Bring your camera to take a picture of their massive 30ft Christmas tree. You can catch the guys outside M&S from 11am.
On the same day kmfm weekend presenter Olivia Jones will be opening the brand new The Range store in Maidstone.
See her there between 11am - 1pm at St Peter’s Park giving you the chance to win a share of £250 vouchers to spend in store.
Then on Sunday, November 24 – I said you would see kmfm everywhere – Olivia Jones and I will be switching in Tonbridge High Street Christmas lights from 3pm.
I have had the pleasure of switching on the lights in Tonbridge for the last four years and every year the streets are packed as we count down to lighting up the high street.
The crowd is amazing and join in with the panto stars, who will be there from the Assembly Halls Tunbridge Wells this year.
It’s Jack and The Beanstalk with Wasterloo Road’s Phillip Martin Brown.
My favourite act, The Rock Choir, will also be taking to the stage to showcase their talent.
They are what I like to call “shopper stoppers”.
They will make you stop what you are doing just to admire their talent. I hope to see you there this Sunday
I’ll speak to you on your way home on kmfm Drivetime from 4pm.
