It's Chico time!

X Factor singing star turned TV presenter, Chico, will be bringing light and colour to the streets of Mansfield as he performs this year's Christmas lights switch on in the Town Centre Market Place.

Best known for his debut single, 'Chico Time', he's currently gracing our screens in a different role as an air steward in ITV2's Celeb Air.

It's Chico time as the X Factor star turns on this year's Christmas lights

The fun begins at 5.30pm on Thursday 13 November with free music and giveaways from the Chad and Mansfield 103.2 roadshow.

Joining Chico in the fun and frolics will be:

· and a grand entrance from the big man himself: Santa Claus will make his entry into the Market Place on a vintage fire engine!

This is the first of the annual late night shopping days in the run-up to Christmas. The Four Seasons Shopping Centre and various shops around the town will be open until 8.30pm.

Lisa Vincent, Town Centre Events and Promotions Co-ordinator, is enthusiastic about the event: "I am sure this year's Christmas lights switch-on will be bigger and better than ever."

"With Chico, Peppa Pig, the stars of Sleeping Beauty, and local Paralympic hero, Sam Hynd, there really is something for everyone – I'm sure old and young alike will enjoy the event."

Paralympic Gold medallist Sam Hynd will also be at the event

"I would urge residents and visitors alike to come along to the market place, join in the fun and partake in some late night Christmas shopping along the way!"
