Dubstep star Katy B switched on Camden Town’s Christmas lights yesterday, alongside Camden’s Mayor, Councillor Jonathan Simpson.

Camden High Road was closed for the first time during the day for a Christmas street party where Katy B performed her appropriately-titled new single Lights On.

Comedienne Amy Lamé assisted with the big switch on and other music acts performed throughout the day including Victoria and Jacob, Goodluck Jonathan, Oh! Gunquit! , Rum Shebeen and Ilia Darlin.

    I wonder if they’re the same lights they haul out every year along Kentish Town High Street? The spewing santa was my fave. I miss him, actually.
