I am a big fan of Paloma Faith. We have seen her twice in concert. Trendous.
She marked the start of the festive season on Regent Street on 16th November by switching on the Christmas lights with the help of Clean Bandit .
She hit the stage in a sequin dress to give a performance for fans before switching on the lights on one of London’s busiest shopping streets.
Her new album, The Architect, was set for release the next day on Friday 17th November, Paloma hit the stage as she gave an electric performance for her fans at the event.
Speaking at the event, Paloma expressed her appreciation for switching on Regent Street’s Christmas Lights: ‘It’s such a huge honour to switch on Regent Street’s iconic Christmas lights this year.’
‘I’m a Londoner, born and bred, so this was a very special moment for me. I loved performing in front of the amazing crowd tonight, they were fantastic!’
The event was Hosted by Heart Radio’s Emma Bunton, the former Spice Girl who spoke on her love for the festive season: ‘Christmas is definitely my favourite time of year.’
Clean Bandit also performed and helped switch on the lights.
The dazzling decorations took on “The Spirit of Christmas” theme for a second year in a row.
The display includes 300,000 sparkling LED lights.
Regent Street was the first to introduce Christmas Lights to the streets of the West End in 1954.
The street was closed to traffic from 6pm so crowds could gather to watch the performances and see the lights switch on. Michael Ball and Alfie Boe performed to get revellers into the Christmas spirit.
Covent Garden switched on its Christmas lights with the help of Kylie.
This year’s display is one of the largest in the capital.
In addition to the celebrity performances and glittering lights, shops on the street stayed open late and visitors were treated to exclusive offers and surprises.
