Following the announcement of former Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle, Gunwharf Quays have confirmed the second act performing at their ‘Light It Up’ 2017 fireworks extravaganza: 2016 X Factor winner Matt Terry!
The annual waterfront fireworks display, organised in collaboration with Wave 105, marks the start of the festive season for the south coast shopping centre, and this year, the event will also aim to raise money for children’s charity Barnardo’s.
Matt is set to perform hits, including his new single Sucker For You, to thousands of fans as part of the evening’s entertainment ahead of the spectacular waterfront fireworks display.
Now an annual event for the shopping centre, the entertainment will be hosted by Wave 105’s breakfast presenter, Rick Jackson.
Colin Wilding, General Manager at Gunwharf Quays, said: “We’re delighted to add Matt Terry to our already incredible schedule of entertainment. Our fireworks extravaganza is renowned across the south coast and we know this year will not disappoint!
“The event marks the start of the festive season, with our Christmas lights displayed for the first time this year. Gunwharf Quays is a magical Christmas shopping destination, giving guests the chance to buy amazing designer brands for less, and we are delighted to be kicking off our Christmas in style.”
Jon Brooks, commercial director at Wave 105, said: “We’re [pleased] to [be working] alongside Gunwharf Quays to help make this wonderful event happen, and are really happy to be able to bring both Nadine and Matt to Portsmouth. The evening promises to be a spectacular night of entertainment and fireworks for all the family.”
