Five time Olympic gold medallist Sir Steve Redgrave will flick the switch at St George’s Plateau to turn on over four miles of Christmas lights across Liverpool city centre.

Everton and Liverpool footballer’s Tim Cahill and John Arne Risse will join Sir Steve Redgrave at the switch on at 6pm. Former Atomic Kitten star Liz McClarnon will perform as part of a bill that includes X-Factor finalist Tabby in an hour long show starting at 5pm.

New lights have been installed on St George’s Hall, The Walker Art Gallery and Central Library, while new trees have been placed in front of St George's Hall and along London Road and in Williamson Square.

Professor Drummond Bone, Chairman of the Liverpool Culture Company said “This year’s switch-on will be a stunning show and is a celebration of the many successes for the city this year – not least by our two football clubs.

"It's fantastic that we are also ending our culture themed year Sea Liverpool with one of the greatest watersports legends - Sir Steve Redgrave."

Warrington’s Christmas lights will be turned on at 5.30pm on Sunday 20th November by Kerry Katona. The show starts at 4.30pm and will include live music from Doctor and the Medics.
