Katy B, Diagram Of The Heart and hot new bands perform as Camden High Street closes its roads to turn on the Christmas lights

Sunday 21st November will see Camden Town turn on its Christmas lights with top UK artists Katy B and Diagram Of The Heart at a street event full of live music and unique entertainment. From 10am, Camden High Street will be closed to traffic to allow visitors to experience what Camden has to offer in a car-free, pedestrian-friendly environment. The day will finish with a performance from Katy B, who’s new single is aptly titled ‘Lights on’, followed by the Christmas light switch-on.

Famous Camden residents MTV, the Roundhouse and Lock Tavern have all teamed up with Camden Town Unlimited and Camden Council to host the exciting one-day event. There will be entertainment from loads of bands including Greece’s answer to Lady Gaga - Ilia Darlin, Victoria and Jacob, Goodluck Jonathan, Oh! Gunquit!, Rum Shebeen and top Brit act Diagram of the Heart, before MTV’s headline act Katy B performs. Camden’s Mayor; Councillor Jonathan Simpson and his Mayoress; larger than life comedienne Amy Lamé will then turn on the Christmas lights alongside Katy B. As well as musical entertainment, all of Camden’s 1,000 market stalls will be open, providing the perfect opportunity for visitors to do their Christmas shopping and find genuinely unique and different gifts away from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street.

Activities will be happening from 11-4:30pm on Sunday 21st November, with Katy B performing between 3:50-4:15pm and the lights will be turned on at 4:25pm.
