Daft as a Brush founder Brian Burnie has promised that the Christmas light switch on at charity’s HQ would be ‘super special’
Families have flocked to Gosforth for some festive fun for the Daft as a Brush Christmas light switch on.
The event held at the charity’s HQ was promised to be a special one, as founder Brian Burnie prepares to take a step back from the charity next year and retires on his 80th birthday. Familes regularly gather to see over a million LED lights illuminate the area, with each light representing a cancer patient’s journey completed by the charity since its creation.
This year’s switch on began with a procession led by the REME army piper band with Cubs, Beavers and Guides from the Three Mile Inn to Daft as a Brush HQ on Great North Road. Traditional Christmas carols accompanied the sound of the Salvation Army Band with refreshments available for everyone.
The Christmas Light show is on daily from 5.30pm – 8.30pm until early January 2024. Members of the public are invited to visit during these times and explore the grounds. For health and safety reasons, no vehicles are permitted.
Here are 20 pictures of the switch on.
