Dick and Dom are in da mall for a crazy start to Christmas at Crystal Peaks...
The madcap stars of CBBC hits Dick and Dom in da Bungalow and Absolute Genius With Dick and Dom will be switching on the Crystal Peaks Christmas lights on Thursday, November 14.
Sheffield-born star Richard McCourt and his telly partner Dominic Wood will flick the switch at 7pm, marking the climax of a fun-filled evening for all the family.
Hosted by Capital FM Breakfast presenter Hirsty, events begin from 4pm and will include performances by pupils from Birley Spa Primary School and Westfield Sports College.

And there will also be a chance to meet the elves from the Crystal Peaks Santa’s Grotto Elf School, which officially opens for its first pupils on Saturday, November 16.
“We have the perfect Christmas package for all the family, starting with what we are sure will be our biggest and brightest lights switch-on, celebrating 25 years of Crystal Peaks,” said centre manager Lee Greenwood.
“Dick and Dom are two of the biggest and most popular names in children’s television and we are delighted they will be able to join us for the launch of the festive holiday season.”
Meanwhile in Rotherham stars from TV talent shows will be getting festivities off to a musical start on the same day.
Diva Fever, former X Factor finalists, will get the party in full swing in All Saints Square at 4.30pm, followed by Karl Michael from The Voice.
Switch-on honours fall to the Mayor of Rotherham Coun John Foden and his grandchildren, Jacob and Matilda, who will bring festive lights to life at 5.55pm. Entertainment continues on the main stage after the main event.
