Christmas Lights Switching on Ceremony video!

Blackheath Christmas Lights Switching on 2008

The Blackheath Christmas Lights are well and truly lit, Nick Ferrari (shouty LBC radio presenter) did the honours, and shouted strange crowd-pleasing things about the credit crunch, as shown in the video below, lovingly shot by Mrs Bugle…

He was joined by local councillors from Greenwich and Lewisham, and a local vicar. Earlier there had been a brass band playing Christmas Carols (provided by the Salvation Army), followed by a procession of church goers, who actually sang beautifully, despite looking rather scary in their black robes…

And if the animated snow and flickering images are driving you nuts, let me know and I’ll change them!

Merry Christmas (almost). Now, where’s that mulled wine?
