Soap stars confirmed for Christmas lights switch on

THE Yorkshire Dales will be coming to the Fens this Christmas, when two stars from Emmerdale switch on the Christmas lights.

Bhasker Patel and Fiona Wade, who play father and daughter Rishi and Priya Sharma in the soap, will be coming to Boston on Friday, November 30, to turn on the lights and kick of the Christmas celebrations in the town.

A whole host of activities has been planned to mark the festive season over the following weekend, with a Christmas market, a stage with live performances, and music from the choir at Boston Stump.

Endeavour Radio has been invited to compere the weekend-long event, which will be called ‘Setting the Scene for Christmas’.

The events have been organised by Boston BID and Boston Borough Council will also be involved.
