12:56pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
X FACTOR champion Matt Cardle will join Dancing on Ice star Jeff Brazier to add wow factor to this year’s Castle Park fireworks display in Colchester.
The Essex singer will sing two songs before This Morning presenter Brazier, who is starring in Peter Pan at Clacton’s Princes Theatre, will lead the count down to the display.
The 43rd fundraiser, organised by King Coel’s Kittens in aid of local people with special needs, will also support Colchester Zoo’s 50th anniversary by collecting for the Action for the Wild charity.
Gates open next Tuesday at 6pm with entertainment from magician Michael J Fitch.
The procession, featuring a Guy stuffed full of old Gazettes created by Judy Alden, will commence from the Castle Keep down to Lower Castle Park, where it will be placed on the bonfire by the Beafeaters.
The display itself, fired by Dynamic Fireworks, begins at 7.30pm.
Tickets, priced £8.50 for adults and £4 for children, are only available in advance.
