I managed to get myself a press pass last week to take pictures at Preston's light switch on, on Saturday 7th November. The weather was absolutely awful and the crowd and myself were all wet through. However, everyone remained in high spirits and there were still smiles throughout the evening despite the soaking!
Various DJ’s presented the night from Lancashire’s Rock Fm team. The night began with a new up and coming band called “Last Breath” who played a few of their songs to warm the crowd up. After that, the evening was filled then with local singers, dance acts, a choir and a visit from the cast of Preston’s pantomime this year, which is Sleeping Beauty. To end the night the headline act Alesha Dixon burst onto the stage to perform some of her hits including “The Way We Are” and Mis-teeq’s smash hit “Scandelous.” The lights were then switched on by Miss Dixon, the Mayor and Mayoress of Preston and the presenters from Rock Fm.
Below are some pictures I took of the evening. Enjoy. Happy snapping!
