Darcey Bussell Switches On Regent Street’s Christmas Lights

Classic FM Presenters Myleene Klass and Aled Jones hosted an enchanting evening with classical music stars Laura Wright and Alison Balsom performing with The Philharmonia Orchestra.

 

Regent Street delivered a spectacular evening of entertainment to celebrate the switching-on of ’Timeless Elegance’, the brand new Regent Street Christmas Lights, sponsored by Jo Malone London.

The crowds were treated to a glamorous occasion to remember, featuring a world- class line up of live entertainment hosted by Classic FM presenters Myleene Klass and Aled Jones.

Darcey Bussell, the Strictly Come Dancing judge and former prima ballerina, who’s storming the charts with her compilation album

‘The Darcey Bussell Ballet Collection’, lit up London as she pulled the switch.

Darcey Bussell said:

“It was an honour for me to switch on the world famous Regent Street Christmas Lights. It was wonderful to see so many people celebrating the start of Christmas with us, right in the heart of the world’s finest city.

Aled Jones said:

“Now that’s what I call a switch on! What a privilege to help turn on Regent Street’s brand new lights.

Joined by thousands of shoppers and with performances from some of Classic FM’s favourite artists, I can’t think of a better

way to launch the countdown to Christmas in London.”

A mixture of shoppers, Classic FM listeners and fans of Strictly Come Dancing entered into the spirit of a truly British evening in the West End. The cast of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, soprano star Laura Wright and British trumpet soloist

Alison Balsom all performed live with the Philharmonia Orchestra. Getting the crowds in the festive spirit, Laura and Alison performed stunning renditions of Christmas favourites ‘Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire’ and ‘Ding Dong Merrily On High’ respectively.

To mark the switch-on moment the Philharmonia Orchestra, conducted by Nicholas Dodd, played a brand new piece of exclusively composed music for Regent Street by Pierre Mussche from Musicom, in collaboration with acclaimed lighting designers Koert Vermeulen and Julie Boniche from ACT Lighting Design, who created the lights.

For the first time ever, the lights feature video animations and projections. As the switch was pulled, the lights moved and sparkled in time with the music. The unique and dazzling elements created a golden way and lit up the night sky over The Mile of Style.

Cheryl Joannides, Vice President General Manager, Jo Malone London said:

“This is Jo Malone London’s first Christmas on Regent Street and, to mark the opening of our Global Flagship, we are delighted to be the first brand to sponsor the new Christmas Lights design. This year’s theme of ‘Timeless Elegance’ celebrates the rich heritage and sophistication of both Jo Malone London and Regent Street itself and a festive spirit, which lies at the heart of the Jo Malone London brand. We look forward to welcoming customers to Regent Street this Christmas…”

Annie Walker, Director of the Regent Street Association said:

“The switch-on of the Regent Street Christmas Lights truly marks the start of the festive season. Shoppers were able to enjoy the glamour of London’s most iconic shopping destination along with live performances and entertainment for all the family to enjoy.”

Range Rover Evoque Convertible Launch

London, UK, Monday 9th November – Having first teased the public with candy-coloured wireframe sculptures, Land Rover has finally revealed the all-new Range Rover Evoque Convertible to the world in spectacular style.

The fifth and newest member of the Range Rover family lowered its roof for the first time in a blaze of dazzling light using state-of-the-art projection technology, transforming the darkness of a cold winter night into the golden glow of warm summer sunshine.

The stunning scene was set against the backdrop of the University of the Arts London’s famous Central Saint Martins building in Granary Square, Kings Cross, London.

The projection covered an area the size of approximately 10 tennis courts using twenty projectors, each with a combined brightness of 400,000 lumens, the equivalent of 40,000 candles. The spectacular reveal also incorporated Granary Square’s innovative and high-tech water feature comprising of 1,080 fountain jets and 4,320 individual low energy LEDs, with each jet individually controlled and lit using a giant pixel map to invoke the mood of the changing seasons.

With design at its core, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible is supremely capable, has space for four adults, a proper boot and even an innovative ski hatch for road trips to Courchevel or Aspen. This is sophisticated roof-down all-season motoring for drivers from all corners of the globe.

Gerry McGovern, Land Rover Design Director and Chief Creative Officer, said: “The Range Rover Evoque Convertible is a symbol of refinement, luxury and creative design. It’s perfectly suited to the urban surroundings of London. The Evoque’s elegant design proportions lend themselves to the creation of a Convertible, and it’s fitting to reveal the vehicle against the backdrop of one of the world’s leading centres for art and design education here in the creative hub of London.”

UAL is Europe’s largest university specialising in art, design, fashion and the performing arts. UAL is made up of six colleges including Central Saint Martins which are world-renowned for progressive art, design and creative thought.

Since its launch in 2010, Evoque has changed the luxury SUV landscape. Now Land Rover’s best-selling model with close to 500,000 sold to date, the compact Range Rover’s progressive design has redefined the perception of compact SUVs. Packed with advanced technology and equipped with fuel efficient petrol and diesel engines, the Evoque has revolutionised the sector.

Design is inextricably linked to Evoque. The distinctive shape was introduced to the world for the first time using wireframe sculptures in 2010 – an artistic theme carried forward to 2015 in the build up to the reveal of the latest member of the Range Rover family. Six new Convertible wireframe sculptures were first shown in London’s most exclusive addresses earlier in October, and today formed part of the production model’s dramatic debut.

The reveal of Evoque Convertible also marks the start of a new partnership between Land Rover and the BORN Summit of Creativity (born.com). BORN is a unique crowdfunding business set up to commercially mobilise the world’s global creative talent. The Summit of Creativity is an annual celebration of the most promising creative ideas from around the world, reflecting Land Rover’s commitment to fostering and nurturing the talent of tomorrow.

In the run up to the BORN Summit of Creativity, which takes place in Courchevel, France, in March 2016, Land Rover and BORN will release a series of short films exploring the processes and challenges of established creative leaders, and how they are encouraging emerging talent.
