Aleks Josh to turn on Stevenage Christmas lights – win the chance to join him

TEEN heartthrob and The Voice star Aleks Josh will be turning on the Stevenage Christmas lights this year, and YOU can win the chance to join him.

The Comet has teamed up with Stevenage Town Centre Management to offer one youngster the chance to press the plunger and light up the town for the festive season.

Aleks, who shot to fame in the BBC1 show, will perform at the event and six fans are set to be given the chance to meet him at a VIP reception after the big event.

The festivities start at lunchtime on Thursday, November 22, with entertainment for the youngest residents.

The enchanted fairies will be face painting and balloon modelling in the town square, and will be joined by Twizzle and Twirl, from 360 Play.

The main event kicks off at 4pm with live music and dance from Stevenage singer Roxy Searle, hip hop street dancers Suki and Zorro, and popular boy band Frixion.
