STARRY NIGHT FIRST EVER JERMYN STREET CHRISTMAS LIGHTS SWITCH-ON
The celebrated electric violin duo, Fuse, starring Linzi Stoppard and Ben Lee, led the first ever switch-on of the Jermyn Street Christmas lights.
When FUSE perform they bring their distinctive sound to their audience, using the same elements to reproduce the experience live - once again setting FUSE worlds apart from all other string acts and in the process rewriting the tired stereo-type, breaking old records and setting new ones. For the truly "original and most innovative string act for over a generation" there is no substitute for FUSE.
Fuse gave a live performance before and after the switch-on as the classically-trained musicians created an electric atmosphere and flicked the switch to illuminate a series of magical reflective stars.
There is also in place a stunning 15 ft high Christmas tree donated from Windsor Great Park by The Crown Estate, located outside St Jamess Church.
