Matt Cardle to switch on Leeds Christmas lights

Former X Factor winner Matt Cardle will be this year's headline act when he helps switch on the festive lights in Leeds.

Those looking for Christmas breaks will be able to see Cardle perform on Thursday November 10th in Victoria Gardens, on the Headrow.

"We are delighted to be welcoming Matt Cardle to Leeds for our lights switch on. He is sure to put on a great performance and along with our other guests will make for a fantastic show to get the Christmas party started in Leeds," said Leeds City Council's executive member for leisure, councillor Adam Ogilvie.

A host of other famous faces are also set to be involved, with the Leeds event normally attracting stars from the city's sporting teams.

Entertainment begins at 18:45GMT on the night, and it will culminate with an exciting fireworks display which will light up the city.

A day later, the Leeds Christkindelmarkt will open its doors, providing visitors with traditional German beer, food and entertainment, along with a host of craft and arts stalls.
