Stevenage Old Town to be lit up for Christmas

A HIGH street will be lit up tonight (Thursday) for the festive period, with the help of footballing stars.

Christmas lights will be turned on in Stevenage Old Town at 7pm as players from Stevenage FC and mascot Boro Bear do the honours at the Bowling Green.

Carol singing will take place half an hour before the switch on, with singer-songwriter Roxy Searle performing afterwards.
