THE Christmas lights switch-on in Stevenage tomorrow (Thursday) is set to be a night to remember. There's a sensational line-up of live music, games and competitions on stage from 4pm.

It was thought that X Factor finalist Lucie Jones would be putting in an appearance but now it has been confirmed she will not be there.

Those who will be performing are Julia West, female group TORA, Elsa Chapman and Diversity-style dance duo Double Trouble as well as special guest star Scott Robinson, former member of the boy band 5IVE.

The group enjoyed international success in a career spanning five years and had 13 single hits including three number ones.

Scott will be performing a medley of 5IVE's greatest hits live on stage, before being joined by the mayor of Stevenage, Cllr Sue Myson, borough council leader Sharon Taylor and young competition winner Vicky Tiffin for the big switch-on at 6.30pm.

There will be plenty of audience participation on stage, with a chance to win some great prizes too, and fingers crossed that the weather stays fine so that the planned firework display can light up the night sky.
