THINGS are getting festive in Marylebone, with the switch-on of the Christmas lights next Wednesday, November 16.

Comedian Jennifer Saunders will do the honours and flick the switch at 6pm.

A family festival will take place on the day from 3pm, complete with tasty food and drink, stalls full of arts and crafts, promotions at local shops and plenty of fun activities for children.

The event, organised by the Howard de Walden Estate, will also feature live performances from a range of singers as well as local schoolchildren.

There will also be a tombola, in aid of Age UK.
