Once again the Covent Garden Christmas lights will transform the area around the Covent Garden Piazza and Market Building with a stunning installation from the United Visual Artists. Covent Garden is famed for its festive lighting extravaganzas and past achievements from the United Visual Artists have included a series of giant chandeliers, which were as far away from traditional Christmas lights as you could possibly expect. This year, the festive light display is just one of the eye-catching elements of the Covent Garden Christmas fun.

The lights are being turned on for the festive season with great fanfare, in a switching on ceremony that includes live entertainment and festive fun galore.
