Oxford Street Christmas lights to be switched on by The Saturdays

Thousands of people are expected to descend on London’s West End this evening to watch the annual ceremony to switch on the iconic Oxford Street Christmas lights.

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Oxford Street Christmas lights to be switched on by The Saturdays

Hosted by Marks & Spencer's Marble Arch store, the proceedings will be presented by Heart 106.2’s Toby Anstiss with the lights being officially switched on by girl group The Saturdays. The girls will also perform an exclusive debut of their new single, My Heart Takes Over.

The mile long Christmas lights scheme, which is funded by Oxford Street retailers, uses LED bulbs and has  been carbon offset with climate change charity PURE.

Jace Tyrrell of New West End Company, the organiser of the event, commented: "London’s iconic Oxford Street Lights will capture the imagination of the tens of millions of visitors over the Christmas period to the West End, including international shoppers coming from as far as China, Russia, Japan, Brazil and Thailand for a Quintessentially British Christmas. With retailers all lit up for the festive season, the West End will attract visitors looking to start their Christmas shopping."
