Household name Pixie Lott will now perform at this year’s Christmas Lights switch-on event in an exciting addition to this year’s star-studded line up.
Pixie will join global superstar DJ Sigala and up and coming boy band Yes Lad at the huge outdoor party in Albert Square, on Saturday 4 November from 7.30pm.
The show will also see a host of performances from a dazzling array of stars of stage and screen, including lead cast members of Elf: The Musical, Shrek, and Guys and Dolls.
Key 103’s breakfast hosts Mike Toolan and Matt Haslam will compere the show with help of Corrie’s Brooke Vincent!
Cllr Pat Karney, Manchester’s Christmas spokesperson, said: “Christmas has come early in Manchester and I know I’ll be joined by thousands of people welcoming Pixie to the city. The biggest Christmas party in the UK has just got bigger!”
Cllr Luthfur Rahman, Manchester City Council’s executive member for culture and leisure, said: “What a fantastic addition to what was already an outstanding line up of performers. Pixie is a firm Manchester favourite, and I know she’ll blow the roof off the show.”
Unfortunately, due to conflicting commitments, Tokio Myers will no longer appear at the Christmas Lights Switch-on event.
The Manchester Christmas Light Switch-on is in partnership between Manchester City Council and Key 103.
As always the event is completely free, just get the family together and wrap up warm. The show is an alcohol free event.
Please note, once Albert Square reaches capacity access into the area will be restricted.
A number of road closures will be in place on the evening – full details to be released.
Please note that entry to Manchester’s Switch-On event will be a little different this year and bag searches will be in operation. We advise you to leave your bags at home in order to minimise delays and to arrive early to avoid disappointment.
