Southend Christmas Lights Switch-on Event – 19 November 2016

Hosted by Heart FM’s Martin & Su, the annual Christmas lights switch-on event in Southend offered a day of music and entertainment throughout the town’s High Street. Starring ‘X-Factor’ and ‘The Voice’ contestant Lydia Lucy – latterly promoted by Will.I.am and the newest member of Black Eyed Peas –  as well as performances from local talents The Avenue, Adam Duffill and Joe Gibson, the large crowd enjoyed and joined in with some powerful singing. Lydia Lucy and Martin & Su were joined by ‘Ryan the Lion’ and Southend’s Mayor, Councillor Judith McMahon, to switch on the lights at 6pm, prompting an instant snow storm. Lydia Lucy ended the event with a sing-along of Mariah Carey’s ‘All I want for Christmas’.

With thanks to Heart FM.
