Nineties music stars are set to perform at a Christmas light switch-on event.

The celebration will take place in Romford Market on Thursday, November 16  and will kick off the seasonal revelry in the borough.  

DJ Luck and MC Neat have been named as the headliners of the ceremony, who will reportedly play their iconic 1999 hit A Little Bit of Luck.

Also taking the stage is Rozalla, who has opened for Michael Jackson during his ‘Dangerous’ tours and is famous for the 90s dance hit Everybody's Free (To Feel Good).

Other artists on the list include the Razzamataz Theatre School and vocalist Vivica Jade. Jade has previously appeared on 'The Voice' and toured with the likes of Ed Sheeran, The Pussycat Dolls, and JLS.

The Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch will hold a preview of Dick Whittington, their Christmas pantomime for this year in addition.

The highlight of the evening, however, is said to be the lights switch-on at 7pm that will be followed by a firework finale.

Councillor Ray Morgon, leader of Havering Council, said: "I hope everyone comes along for the wonderful entertainment and fireworks as we count down to Christmas in Havering."

Hinting at the impending bankruptcy threat, he added: “I think it’s really important that we enjoy Christmas after the last few tough years.

“However, sadly, given our funding challenges, we might not always be able to host events like this in the coming years.

“We will have to make some tough choices and continue to make savings. We will work with our businesses and local communities to see how we can still celebrate in the future.”
