Details have emerged of how much Perth and Kinross Council paid for its lavish Christmas lights switch-on ceremony.
Consultants are finalising a study of how much the annual street party, which brought tens of thousands of people into the city centre, benefited the local economy.
But newly-released documents show that the local authority spent more than £100,000 on entertainment at the extravaganza on November 17.
Former X Factor star James Arthur and chart-topper Pixie Lott were the biggest names on the bill and Catchphrase presenter Stephen Mulhern compered the event.
It has emerged the council struck a deal worth £41,700 with Blackpool-based booking agency Big Foot Events for the main stage talent.
A further £40,070 was spent on street entertainment, an ice rink and ice sculptors.
Nearly £10,000 was paid to Edinburgh-based 21cc Fireworks Ltd for a pyrotechnics display to close the night.
The £132,000 total revealed so far does not include the performance fee for Pixie Lott, it is understood.
An economic assessment being prepared for councillors is expected to show that the event once again generated more than £1 million for the economy.
