Join us for the Marylebone Village Christmas Lights Switch On and Immersive Shopping Experience!
Marylebone Village has officially announced that the nation’s favourite father and son duo Martin and Roman Kemp will be switching on the Christmas lights at their ‘Merry Marylebone’ festive switch on and shopping day on Wednesday 10 November 2021.
The pair have both openly spoken about depression and mental health, recently exploring this in Roman’s award nominated BBC Three documentary ‘Our Silent Emergency’.
Singer, actor and all-round legend Martin and Capital Breakfast Radio host and broadcaster Roman will publicly switch on the festive Christmas lights, taking place in the heart of Marylebone Village’s Marylebone High Street at 6pm. The stage is located at the top of the High Street on Devonshire Street and will be hosted by local resident and BBC London’s radio presenter Jo Good.
We would love for you to join us at the Mind in Brent, Wandsworth & Westminster interactive stall led by our Therapeutic Arts programme, Portugal Prints, where we will be creating medallions, Christmas decorations and necklaces using recycled materials inspired by the work of Mark Bradford.
To celebrate, over 50 shops, cafes, bars and restaurants will join together to offer visitors a huge range of value-added offers, festive experiences, exclusive discounts, and specially created menus available for one day only.
With activity in full swing across Marylebone Village between 3-7pm, spectators can get into the festive spirit with free wreath making, a personalisation station with resident artist Eleni, snow machines, santa’s grotto, roaming musicians, and enjoy the Christmas lights from above by taking a ride on the fairground’s Ferris Wheel.
