AFTER Dark, Yorkshire’s biggest firework display, is getting the X Factor - with live finalists Miss Dynamix to launch the fireworks at Sheffield’s Don Valley Bowl, writes Graham Walker.
And we are giving you the chance to help them light up the sky.
That’s the amazing prize for one lucky Star reader who will help press the plunger on the Real Radio stage with the girl band who left the X Factor on Sunday night (October 26).
The three-piece’s performance of Don’t You Worry Child by Swedish House Mafia. It was not enough to keep them in the competition, as the judges saved teenager Hannah Barrett.
But Miss Dynamix are promising you havben’t heard the last of them and one of their first performances will be on stage at the Sheffield event next week.
VIDEO: Press the play button to watch Miss Dynamix talking about their time or the X Factor and future plans.
Joining them will be Real Radio breakfast show presenters Dixie and Gayle.
Our winner and a guest will also get the chance to go backstage to meet the X Factor star, who will perform live in front of thousands of people.
We also have four pairs of runner- up tickets to be won.
Up to 20,000 people are set to descend on Sheffield’s Don Valley Bowl for the event which takes place on Tuesday, November 5, 5.30pm until 10pm.
Highlights include a giant bonfire, to be lit at 7.30pm and the fireworks display gets underway at 8.45pm.
There will also be funfair rides, food stalls and a bar at ice Sheffield overlooking the event.
After Dark, sponsored by Slater & Gordon Lawyers, is backed by The Star, Real Radio, Sheffield City Council, Stagecoach Supertram, Sheffield International Venues, The Students Unions and is organised by Yellow Bus Events.
Organisers stress the closure of Don Valley Stadium makes no difference to Don Valley Grass Bowl.
Scott Barton said: “All is set for the best After Dark ever!”
