Nantwich Rio Olympic and Paralympic stars Bryony Page and Andrew Small will be switching on the town’s Christmas lights this year.

Trampolinist silver medalist Page and wheelchair racing bronze medalist Small both went to Brine Leas School in Nantwich.

And they did the town proud at the Rio Games in the summer with their stunning performances.

They will be joined for the November 19 Lights Switch on by Nantwich singer Thea Gilmore (pictured, below).

Bryony, 25, who also studied at Malbank Sixth Form, scooped the first ever British trampolining medal when her routine scored 56.040.

Bringing home a bronze medal, 23-year-old Andrew (pictured, below) also gained his personal best 17.96 seconds, in the mens T33 100m final.


Last year’s event was a massive success with thousands flocking to the town to see the switch-on.

And organisers hope this year’s event, on Saturday November 19, will be bigger than ever.

There will be a packed programme running from 4pm, including performances from local musical and singing talents Josh Whittaker and Callum Wright.

Nantwich Young Voices will entertain, leading us into the big switch-on, followed by a musical firework spectacular from Blitz Fireworks at 5.30pm.

To complete the event, there will be food, treats, fairground rides and photo opportunities with Santa’s Polka Dot Pirate.
