Kye Sones to Perform at Harrow Christmas Lights Switch-On

X Factor pop sensation, Kye Sones, will return home to Harrow to perform at the switch on of Harrow town centre’s Christmas Tree lights.

The popular talent show singer from Pinner will perform four songs from a stage outside the Royal Oak public house in St Ann’s Road on Saturday 1st December. Crowds will be entertained from 4pm on St Ann’s Road, with Radio Northwick Park getting the party started. The Mayor of Harrow, Cllr Nizam Ismail, will switch on the Christmas tree lights at 5pm.

Harrow singers Mitsotu, who narrowly missed the live shows after making it through to the judges’ houses in this year’s X factor, will warm up the audience with a live performance before Kye takes to the stage.

Harrow Council has installed the Christmas Tree, along with festive lights in Station Road, College Road and St Ann’s Road, using support from the Mayor’s Outer London Fund, which is helping increase the vibrancy and growth of high street places across London.

Jeff Jackson, manager of St Ann’s shopping centre, said: “I think it’s fantastic that Kye will be here to perform for everybody. I think Christmas is all about children and a lot of young people will really love the fact that he’ll be here. I think this could draw in a lot of people who haven’t been to Harrow before and I hope they will see what we have to offer and will keep coming back for more.”

Cllr Keith Ferry, portfolio holder for planning and economic development on Harrow Council, said: “Kye did Harrow proud during his time on the X Factor and we’re delighted that he’ll be joining us to launch the town centre’s Christmas countdown. Supporting the town centre and local businesses is a top priority for the Council, they are at the heart of our communities and we want them to thrive. I hope that the entertainment on offer will show people what else in on offer in the town centre. It’s sure to be a great evening and I hope Harrow residents turn out in force to join the festivities – and keep coming back to the town centre throughout December.”
