Gallery: March shines bright as thousands pack streets for annual Christmas Lights Switch-on
Thousands braved Friday evening's freezing temperatures to watch March get lit up for the festive season.
As always the annual switch-on was a massive hit with people of all ages packing the town's Market Place to watch local radio presenter Johnny Dee press the button to turn on the thousands of lights.
The switch-on was accompanied by a fun fair in Broad Street and a colourful display of narrow boats along the Old River Nene thanks to members of the Middle Level Watermen’s Club.
