NEW Christmas lights have been installed in Huddersfield town centre.
Mirfield-born actor Patrick Stewart will switch on the illuminations at the Piazza on November 19 at 6.15pm.
The £100,000 lights by Lockwood firm KD Decoratives have impressed town centre traders.
David Whittle, owner of Peters department store on King Street, said: “The lights brighten up the town and make it look really inviting – and they aren’t even switched on yet.
“I’m really pleased that Kirklees Council decided to fund the lights.”
