Harry Potter twins James and Oliver Phelps will be lighting up the Harlequin Shopping Centre in Watford as it switches on for Christmas.

James and Oliver - aka Fred and George Weasley - will give visitors a magical treat at the lights swicth-on tomorrow (November 3) from 6pm when they illuminate the centre and start the firework spectacular with a bang.

The brothers will be taking a break from promoting their whirlwind Warner Bros. Studio Tour LondonThe Making of Harry Potter to turn on the lights just outside the centre by Waterstones bookshop. They will then be meeting and greeting shoppers to spoil them with autographs on the Level One Gallery of The Harlequin, just above Next.

On top of that, the stars of the Watford Palace Theatre 2011 pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk, will be there accompanied by Watford FC stars as well as smoking hot new boy band Eli Prime fresh from their recent tour with chart toppers McFly. The boys will be there to set the stage and hearts alight with a breathtaking performance.

There will be fun for all the family with games and give-aways aplenty, plus an early visit from the big man himself, Father Christmas, who will be joined by the beautiful face of The Harlequin, Laura who will be hosting the evening.

Erin Walsh, Marketing Manager at The Harlequin, comments, '2011 is set to be another amazing light switch on for The Harlequin. We're so excited about having film stars James and Oliver Phelps switch on the lights and start the firework spectacular as well as all of the other stars attending.

'There will be fun for all the family and we cant wait to start the festive period in style!'
