TV weatherman Jon Mitchell will switch on Lincoln's Christmas lights.
The ITV regional presenter will perform the honours on November 22.
Steve Barclay who pays 'the Dame' in this year's Theatre Royal pantomime Dick Whittington, will also join the festivities.
They will accompany the Civic Party headed by The Right Worshipful the Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Karen Lee. They will leave the Guildhall at 6.50pm and make their way to the war memorial in High Street.
Carols will be played by the Salvation Army Band to accompany the ceremony with entertainment provided by St Hugh's School choir and John Allison.
Compere for the evening will be Lincs FM's Rob Hammond who will introduce the Mayor's Chaplain Father John Kyne before Councillor Lee delivers her Christmas message.
After some words from Jon Mitchell, the Mayor will officially switch on this year's lights at around 7pm.
More carols from the Salvation Army Band will then be played as the Civic Party makes its way back to the Guildhall.
