The date for the Westwood Cross Christmas lights switch on has been announced as Friday 17th November.
The free event, hosted in collaboration with Thanet Academy FM and Stagecoach, will include a festive procession, giveaways and a star-studded line up of tribute act performances and UK pop legends.
