Gildersome folk are getting ready to light up their village for the festive season.
The popular light switch on event, organised by Gildersome Parish Council, will take place on Friday November 14 at Gildersome Meeting Hall.
It starts at 6.45 pm with a selection of Christmas songs sung by children from Birchfield and Gildersome primary schools and there will be a special guest to take part in the countdown to switch-on.
There will then be a firework display, barbecue and refreshments, including mulled wine. All is free, but donations towards Children in Need will be greatly appreciated.
