The event starts from 7.30pm, with a 90s disco until late.

Susan French, performance venues manager at Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre, said: “We are very excited that East 17 are coming to Hartlepool and performing all the fan faves at the Town Hall Theatre this Christmas.

“They are undoubtedly one of the biggest bands of the 90s and it’s just not Christmas until you’ve heard their festive banger ‘Stay Another Day’ on the radio!

“This event would make the perfect office Christmas party and we really hope people dress up in those iconic white fur-rimmed coats and get into the party spirit when we throw it back to the 90s this Christmas.”

East 17 have sold nearly two million records in the UK and more than 18 million worldwide.

The party will form part of Hartlepool’s Christmas celebrations, which begin in earnest on Friday November 29 when the town’s festive lights will go on.

People in the borough have already had a dose of winter festivities, however, with the success of Wintertide on the Headland last weekend.

Hundreds of people turned out for the opening parade when 70 children from St Bega’s and St Helen’s primary schools and their families walked from the Heugh Battery Museum to the Town Square for the start of the three day event.

Buildings were bathed in light, and families gathered to see Santa switch on the area’s Christmas lights.
