Yes Swindon’s sporting heroes and Olympic torch bearers lined up alongside the X-factor sensation Jahmene Douglas to switch on Swindon’s Town Centre Lights.
Almost 3 time the average County Ground crowd, about 28,000, gathered in the Parade and Wharf Green to see the fun and interviews with the Town’s sporting elite.
Jahmene joined the sportsmen and women to turn on the lights and then sang three numbers including Robbie Williams “Angels” which he dedicated it his mother Mandy.
The event was staged by InSwindon.
