At 5:12 in the evening, three minutes earlier than originally scheduled, the crowd joined in with the countdown in anticipation of the big switch-on.
After the ten-to-one countdown, the plunger was pressed, and festive-themed illuminations lit up the square and the surrounding streets.
The enormous Christmas tree next to the White Hart Tavern proved to be a spectacle with lights wrapped around it from top to bottom, while Pete the Elf also glowed and proved popular among many who attended.
