South Woodford’s inaugural Christmas lights switch-on was attended by over 200 people and will become an annual fixture in the community calendar.

“It was an enormous success! The Mayor of Redbridge and Sir Iain Duncan Smith MP welcomed the throng and posed for photos. Everyone enjoyed the Redbridge Drama Centre panto characters, the Christmas presents on roller skates and the beautiful Snow Queens on stilts – and joined in the festive singalong with gusto, accompanied by Brook Brass and Redbridge Music Lounge, buoyed by churros and mulled wine!” said a spokesperson for the South Woodford Society, which organised the event.

“We had so much positive feedback and suggestions for making it even better next year. South Woodford’s annual Christmas lights switch-on has begun!”
