Made in Chelsea Star Louise Will Turn on Christmas Lights
Part of the attractions at North End Road's Christmas Market
Made in Chelsea star Louise Thompson will switch on the Christmas lights in Fulham’s North End Road today, Saturday November 28 at 4.30pm.
She will be joined by the recently formed West End Musical Choir, who are based in Fulham, who will etertain the crowds with a favourite song from Le Miserables, Do You Hear the People Sing?
The switch-on is among the many attractions at the first of two big, traffic-free Christmas markets in North End Road, which are taking place today and Saturday December 12.
Louise will also be taking among the stallholders at the markets selling her designer clothing line, Pocket.
The Christmas markets build on the success of last year’s festive market and a summer market in June that attracted 15,000 visitors. They are being organised by the council and the North End Road Action Group as part of their commitment to revive North End Road.
orth End Road is offering residents two opportunities to get into the Christmas spirit and shop in a traffic free space with Christmas markets taking place on November 28 and 12 December 12.
On both occasions, North End Road will be pedestrianised and packed with stalls on both sides selling Christmas presents and great food, with entertainment for the whole family.
The Christmas markets are part of Hammersmith & Fulham council’s drive, together with residents in the North End Road Action Group, to revive this major high street.
As well as the ever-popular fruit and veg stalls selling top quality produce at below-supermarket prices, there are more than 100 new stalls offering festive presents, hand-made decorations and crafts, street food, delicious cakes, mulled wine and much more.
Today's market offers live music, a children’s funfair, Christmas carols and unusual entertainment, including the sparkling Glitter Belles (stiltwalkers like giant-sized baubles), balloon-modelling elves and the athletic Grace Billings with her light-up hula hoops.
