Marylebone Christmas Lights 17th November 2010

This is the Christmas Lights event that we always attend, we give this 10 out of 10 and is not to be missed 

Every year Marylebone Village hosts a Christmas Lights event to celebrate the switch on of its Christmas decorations. Organised by The Howard de Walden Estate, this is a fantastic community event packed with crowds coming to watch the switch on. The event is a true village affair with local retailers and residents working together to make the evening a success.
The event starts at 3.30pm with activities taking place until 6.30pm. Most of the activity is focused around the main stage on Marylebone High Street where the switch on takes place at 6pm. This year we will be supporting the charity Young Minds, the voice for young people’s mental health and well-being.

Here is a selection of what's going on on the night
