THREE piece girl band Stooshe are to be the headliners at this year's Barnstaple Christmas lights switch on.
The group – made up of Alex Buggs, Courtney Rumbold and Karis Anderson – will take to the stage on November 24 in the Square.
The band rose to fame after a lyric video for their first single Betty Woz Gone attracted 150,000 views on YouTube in just two days and became the most watched video in the UK.
They translated this online support into sales with the release of their first single Love Me which made it to number five in the charts.
Their next single Black Heart went to number three in the charts and sold 500,000 copies during the 16 weeks it spent in the top 40.
Sue Rawle, of event organisers BID Barnstaple, said: "With hits such as these under their belts, plus appearances at many of the major festivals, Stooshe will go down well with all ages. Everyone had better get ready to party, as this promises to be a fun filled event."
