There’s a whole lot of festive family fun taking place at a variety of venues across Alfreton this Saturday (November 25) for the Derbyshire town’s Light Switch On Event.
The family fun will be taking place at a variety of venues including at the Genesis Entertainment Centre (midday-5pm) and in Alfreton Indoor Market (8am-6pm), as well as in and around Alfreton House in High Street (2pm-6pm).
Derbyshire’s very own Mr Jugalubs is just one of the entertainers who has been booked by event organisers Alfreton Town Council to help make the festive extravaganza shine with Yuletide cheer.
Children’s entertainer and clown Mr Jugalubs will be in Alfreton all day on Saturday twisting balloons into animals and flowers, and more, to give away.
In the morning the colourful character will be roaming around the town and in the afternoon he will be joining in the fun around Alfreton house.
Mr Jugalubs, who lives in Matlock, has been providing circus skills workshops and activities for events and parties, including balloon twisting and big bubbles, for more than ten years.
He told the Spirit of Alfreton: “I have been providing circus skills workshops, circus fun activities for family and community events and children’s entertainment for 12 years.
“I have been booked to do balloon twisting at Alfreton’s Christmas Lights Switch on for a number of years now and always enjoy the day.”
Mr Jugalubs added: “I am looking forward to another fun day this year and to giving away lots of balloon dogs, dinosaurs and reindeer to all the people of Alfreton that I meet.”
