A bumper crowd descended on Old Town last night for the 2010 Old Town Christmas lights switch-on.  
 
Swindon's record-breaking explorer David Hempleman-Adams - the first man in history to reach the Geographic and Magnetic North and South Poles as well as climb the highest peaks in all seven continents  - was the guest of honour, and were STFC stars JP McGovern and Michael Timlin to illuminate Wood Street and the surrounding area.

(l to r) Total Star FM's Howard Taylor, STFC's Michael Timlin
and JP McGovern, Mayor Rex Barnett, David Hempleman-Adams
and the Mayoress

A whole host of events took part in Wood Street including fire jugglers; a display by Success Martial Arts; 'Wendy' from the Wyvern Panto Peter Pan; a 'Christmas in France & Bulgaria' Folk Dance from the Tanwood Dancers and an appearance from the cast of Nutcracker, the Arts Centre panto - and Santa!
