Hundreds of residents packed into Kettering' s Market Place to celebrate the town's Christmas lights switch on after a break of a year due to Covid.

Guest of honour, Paralympic golden girl Maisie Summers-Newton, led the countdown to Kettering's Christmas joined by panto stars from The Masque Theatre's show Cinderella.

As well as entertainment from the team at Shire Sounds, the large crowd was treated to a display by the Costello School of Irish Dance, Christmas classics sung by 'The Tenor' Josh Daniel and a finale by Kettering band The Touch.

Stalls from local groups lined the streets and a fair held in St Peter and St Paul Church culminated in a ring of bells to end the celebrations.
