Singer Lucy O’Byrne, who will be starring as Maria in The Sound of Music at Peterborough’s Broadway theatre in December will be performing at the city centre Christmas lights switch-on event later this month.

Olympic gymnast Louis Smith will switch on the lights in Cathedral Square on November 14 with the help of Peterborough mayor councillor John Peach.

Lucy, who was a finalist on The Voice talent show on BBC1 earlier this year, said: “It’ll be my first time in Peterborough so it’ll be nice for me to see the town and meet some of the people as well.

“It’ll be good for them to see a little bit of the show when I perform, which will hopefully make them want to come and see it at the Broadway!”
