Panto stars and carol singers celebrate as the lights go on in Hope Street.

THE Snow Queen helped transport Liverpool's Hope Street back to Dickensian times at the switch-on of its own Christmas lights.

The "Queen" took time out from her opening night at the Unity Theatre to join the hundreds of local residents who were enjoying mulled wine and mince pies.

More than 60 people also joined the Hope Street Choir and congregated on the steps of restaurant 60 Hope Street to sing traditional Christmas carols.

Sue Williams, the executive director at the Unity theatre, said: "Hope Street is one of the city's most exciting areas.

"It has something for everyone.

"We were delighted the Snow Queen could help switch on the lights. They look wonderful with the backdrop of the Cathedrals."

Gary Manning, owner of 60 Hope Street, added: "It's been great to see familiar faces from the cultural quarter come along and celebrate in a street many people hold dear to their hearts."
