Covent Garden Christmas Switch On 2018

Date: TUESDAY 13TH NOVEMBER

The festive season officially started in Covent Garden on Tuesday 13th November with a switch on extravaganza as singing sensation Paloma Faith was joined by royal wedding favourites The Kingdom Choir and stars of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Matilda The Musical to officially ‘switch on’ the Christmas lights in support of Crisis, the charity behind ending homelessness for good.

The switch on moment lit up Covent Garden, with London’s biggest hand-picked Christmas tree - standing at 55ft tall in the Piazza and weighing a whopping 1.5 tonnes – glittering with 30,000 lights. The lights also illuminated the glitter covered bow on the corner of James Street, the iconic mistletoe and glitter balls in the Market Building and the brand new ‘infinity chamber’ light installation in Conduit Court, off Floral Street.
