Angel Day will make it a razzle-dazzle Christmas

This year’s sparkling all-Angel Christmas lights switch-on will be at 5pm on Saturday November 18 when we shall be holding the first ever Angel Day.

In partnership with Angel Central we will be celebrating all that’s good about the Angel, all our wonderful shops, renowned restaurants and bars, Chapel Market, and the fact that Camden Passage is back in business.

As well as our usual sparkling Christmas lights, there will be some new illuminations in Camden Passage, and we are lighting up 40 trees along Upper Street. It’s all about giving a big festive boost to our businesses devastated by last December’s Thames water flood. 

This year’s festive events include Father Christmas & his elves performing during the afternoon and switching on the Christmas lights  in Angel Central, the Puss in Boots cast from Hoxton Hall appearing at 3.30pm, Islington Mayor Una O’Halloran touring the area, face-painting and buskers in Chapel Market, music, living statues, mulled wine, mince pies and late night opening in Camden Passage.  Watch this space for more details!!
