Christmas lights switch-on in the Angel 2021

02 November

We are delighted to confirm that the Angel will once again ‘Glow’ for the festive season. The switching-on of the Christmas lights around the Angel will take place on Thursday 18 November.


The newly refurbished Angel Central will be hosting a switch-on ceremony with Santa himself doing the all important duties. 

From 5pm to 7pm, there will be performances from King’s Head Theatre’s Beowulf panto stars, local choirs, and giveaway goodie bags filled with wooden tree decorations, chocolates, and even a plant-at-home Christmas tree.


For even more festive fun on the evening, Islington Square will be switching on their festive lights under the Islington Square Christmas arches.  From 6pm until 9pm, you’ll be able to enjoy a mulled wine and mince pie (or three) whilst watching a show by Little Angel Theatre, followed by live music in the South Arcade.
