S Club to light up Hamilton this Christmas

Members of chart-topping British pop band, S Club are set to mark the official start to the festive season in Hamilton as they help to switch on this year’s Christmas lights.

Previously part of the original S Club 7, pop trio Jo O’Meara, Bradley McIntosh and Tina Barrett, will take to the stage in the town square on Saturday, November 19. 

Hamilton Business Improvement District (BID) has signed up the act to headline Hamilton’s day of festive fun and is expecting them to be an even bigger draw than last year’s performers, Jedward.

Hosted by Heart Radio’s Paul Harper, the Christmas lights will be switched on at 6pm in Castle Square, following a jam-packed line-up of entertainment throughout the day, including a stage show, a craft market and a dry ski slope in Quarry Street.

Gareth Walker, BID Manager at Hamilton Business Improvement District, said: “We’re very pleased to announce that Jo, Brad and Tina of S Club will be lighting up Hamilton this year as they switch on the Christmas lights and mark the official start of the festive season in the town. 

“We had previously organised for Union J to do the honours, however due to their busy schedule, we’ll be welcoming Jo, Brad and Tina of S Club instead and we’re inviting the town to join in the Christmas spirit.”

The S Club three reunited last year and have performed together at a series of gigs up and down the country.

In their five years together between 1998 and 2003, the original S Club 7 had four UK number-one singles, one UK number-one album, and a string of hits throughout Europe.  They recorded four studio albums, released 11 singles and went on to sell more than 10 million albums worldwide.
