15,000 enjoy Light Switch On entertainment from Professor Green, Union J and Alexa Goddard
Thousands of music fans were entertained by performances from UK chart-topper Professor Green, one of the UK’s biggest boy bands Union J, and up-and-coming pop sensation Alexa Goddard, as they lit up the stage, despite the adverse weather conditions, at the highly anticipated Meadowhall and Capital Yorkshire Charity Light Switch On tonight.
More than 15,000 fans turned out in force for the concert which raised funds for the centre’s charity of the year, St Luke’s Hospice, and Global’s Make Some Noise.
While music lovers partied with the stars outside, thousands of shoppers inside the Centre were able to marvel at the illuminations across the malls, which were turned on at 8.00pm to mark the start of the festive period.
Darren Pearce, Centre Director at Meadowhall said: “We have enjoyed yet another amazing night with the star studded line up performing to a fantastic crowd.
“We are delighted to have raised funds for two very worthwhile charities, St Luke’s Hospice and Global’s Make Some Noise, which have both benefited through ticket sales from the event.”
Capital Yorkshire’s Breakfast show presenter JoJo Kelly commented: “The Meadowhall crowd never disappoints when it comes to giving us a brilliant response. The setting, the acts and the fireworks made for another Light Switch On concert to remember!”
Darren Pearce added: “The Light Switch On concert marks the start of Christmas in-centre, and is the first of many events coming up at Meadowhall. On November 14, Santa will arrive complete with his Magical Kingdom and Grotto, which can be enjoyed right up until Christmas Eve and there are plenty more festivities throughout December.”
