A rising Merseyside band is taking to the stage in St Helens this Christmas, for the borough's annual festive lights switch-ons.
St Helens and Earlestown will soon see their town centres twinkling with beautiful Christmas lights, which will be turned on on November 25 and December 2 respectively.
Earlestown's very own four-piece band, The K's - who have supported the likes of Blondie, Liam Gallagher - will headline both events. The band said it is an "absolute privilege" to be involved, having spent their own childhoods watching the lights be turned on each Christmas.
A spokesperson for St Helens Borough Council said they are "delighted" and described The K's as "one of the North's fastest rising indie bands of 2023".
The switch-on events will also feature a free ice rink, funfair, face painting and local performers.
