On Thursday 16th December, Smoke Radio broadcasted this year’s Regent Street Christmas Light Switch On. The live broadcast hosted by Claire Lynch and Callum Reeve featured live performances from Micheal Ball & Alfie Boe, Clean Bandit and Paloma Faith.

Claire Lynch said: “I had such a laugh hosting the live coverage! It was the first OB I’ve done. However we did pull through the cold weather and it was so worth it – Regent Street looked beautiful”

Callum Reeve loved being apart of the event too: “The whole night was exciting from start to finish. Everyone involved did an amazing job and the atmosphere around us was exhilarating. It was amazing to be given the chance to present with one of my mates and to watch the live music in between!”

Fireworks as the ‘Spirit of Christmas’ display is switched on across Regent Street – the first central London street to introduce festive lighting and decoration back in 1954

The show also saw Smoke Radio crew out and about on Regent Street chatting to members of the public about Christmas. See all of the videos on our Facebook page.
