Marylebone Christmas Lights

The Plum team were treated to an incredible and spectacular afternoon of Christmas festivities yesterday on Marylebone High Street. The annual event was always one which Plum had wanted to become more involved in on a more personal level, not only because of the support the event gives to various chosen charities but also for the natural warmth and seasonal fervour the afternoon brings to the local community. This year, The Howard de Walden Estate unanimously chose Scope as their charity and invited non other than the award winning actress, and writer Jessica Hines, most famed for her roles in several exceptional British films and television series’.

Many established retailers on Marylebone High Street celebrated the event by offering special discounts in store and in der to fully embrace the public mood, offered mulled wine and mince pies! These worldwide recognised brands include the esteemed knitwear designer Eileen Fisher and the luxury Scottish cashmere label Brora to The Conran Shop and Emma Bridgewater, purveyor of the world’s finest and most colourful china!

Live acts and performances were also present to entertain the crowds whilst there were number of incredible activities for the kids from Santa’s Grotto and a Fun Fair to reindeer and competitions. Everyone was certainly well catered for!

The Plum team were there alongside several other cashmere brands as well as some alpaca brands from Peru and Herefordshire and have already put the date in the diary for 2015 and hope you do too- we’re confident you’ll be pleased you did!
