Beverley Knight, X Factor and Corrie stars – All the info for tomorrow’s Christmas lights
A host of stars are due to turn on Preston’s Christmas lights tomorrow in an event on the Flag Market.
Soul singer Beverley Knight, X Factor’s Jonjo Kerr and Coronation Street stars Ryan Thomas (Jason Grimshaw) and Helen Flanagan (Rosie Webster) are due to attend the event which starts at 3:30 tomorrow.
Mark Whittle, Business Improvement District’s Events Manager said: “We are delighted that we’ve managed to secure such recognisable names to help Preston welcome Christmas 2011.
“Our partnership with Real Radio and support from St. George’s Shopping Centre has enabled us to guarantee that this year’s event will be the best to date.
“Not only does the event provide a family friendly reason to bring the city together but in addition, bringing in thousands of people for the event provides a tangible boost in trade for businesses.
“We’ve been working on securing an artist line up to rival any other town or city across the North West and I’m confident we’ve achieved that. It’s a given that Preston’s Switch On event is the benchmark for others in Lancashire.”
