SOUTH AYRSHIRE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS SWITCH ON

South Ayrshire Paralympian Robyn Love will be joining stars of stage and screen Gareth Gates and Michelle Heaton to switch on Ayr’s Christmas Lights on Sunday 20 November at 6pm.
26 year old Robyn of Ayr is fresh from a fantastic 4th place Wheelchair Basketball win at Rio 2016 and is delighted to be part of this festive celebration in her home town.

Gareth Gates (Legally Blonde, Les Miserables, Dancing On Ice, Pop Idol) will headline the event performing hits from his pop and stage career. Gareth said "To be asked to switch on Ayr’s Christmas lights is fantastic and I’m so pleased to be back in Ayr again. I was here earlier this year at the beautiful Gaiety Theatre in Mad About The Musicals so it’s fair to say I love the place!”

Michelle Heaton (Liberty X) is all set to appear as the wicked queen in this year’s Gaiety Panto and will be joining Gareth and Robyn on stage for the big switch on with Gareth Gates and Michelle both keen to meet and greet fans afterwards too!
