Christmas officially began in Seven Kings on Friday when the festive lights were switched on amid carol singing and the unveiling of a tree.

The extravaganza was organised by the Seven Kings Business Partnership and was attended by the mayor of Redbridge Cllr Linda Huggett, Seven Kings councillors, school children and residents.

Even Peter Pan flew in, making the short trip from the Kenneth More Theatre, Oakfield Road, Ilford, where he is performing in panto along with Captain Hook and the other children’s story favourites.

The tree was lit up outside Seven Kings station to welcome commuters.
