Robbie To Switch On Oxford Street's Christmas Lights

If the drop in temperature has you feeling festive, prepare yourself for more feelings of good will with the news that Robbie will be switching on this year's Christmas lights on London's Oxford Street!

He'll take to the stage to turn on the UK's most spectacular and iconic Christmas lights on 5th November, the day Robbie's new album, Take The Crown, is released. For the first time ever the street will feature interactive light displays consisting of 300ꯠ bulbs set to dazzle the tens of thousands of people who gather every year on the streets below, along with a performance from Robbie himself!

Robbie announced the news on Heart 106.2 this morning while chatting to JK and Lucy on the Breakfast Show. To re-live the excitement, you can listen again to the show by clicking here.

The day's proceedings will kick off at 5PM GMT. Everyone is welcome to come down and join in the celebrations, but for the first time there are tickets for a 4ꯠ capacity golden viewing circle for those lucky enough to secure a place. Tune into the Heart 106.2 Breakfast Show from 06:00 GMT on Monday 29th October to find out how to be in with a chance of getting tickets.

Robbie said of the event: "Oxford Street is a fantastic place to do your Christmas shopping and it's great to be part of the celebrations. I can't believe I am turning on the lights! 'Take the Crown' is released on the same day - 5th November - and I'm looking forward to performing for the amazing crowds on London's Oxford Street."

Don't forget to listen in on Monday for your chance at getting a place in the crowd. Good luck!
