The event will also feature musical performances from Gary Allen of The Engine Room, Madonna tribute act Gayle Fraser, Elvis tribute act Leigh Casling and an Amy Winehouse impersonator. The band ‘The Push’ will perform at The White Horse Pub after the switch-on.

The event is free to attend, and the lights will be switched on at 5.30m.

The stretch of High Street by Chester Gibbons Green will be closed for the duration of the event.
