Lights and snow as X Factor and The Voice comes to Stevenage

STARS from television shows The X Factor and The Voice will get Stevenage rocking this evening (Thursday) at the Christmas lights switch on party.

Singers Kitty Brucknell and Aleks Josh will perform live on stage in Town Square during the party which begins at 4pm and climaxes with the lights and snow at 6.30pm.

Father Christmas and the cast from this year’s Stevenage panto Robin Hood and will also be joining the fun as will the Comet mascot Sniffer the Newshound.

Earlier in the day from 12.30pm to 2pm the square was filled with festive family activities, including fairies, children’s entertainers and carol singing.

But the strong winds have put pay to the fireworks, which have been cancelled last minute.
