Christmas lights switch-on signals start of festive season in Worcester
The switching on of Worcester's Christmas lights has officially launched the festive season in the city.
Mayor Jabba Riaz pressed the button to light up the city in a packed Cathedral Square.
The crowds were entertained in the build-up to the big moment with performances by singers and a choir, with the event hosted by BBC Hereford & Worcester's Malcolm Boyden and Elliott Webb.
Stilt walkers mingled with the crowds, juggling and posing for selfies.
