Jonathan Ross and Robert Pires to turn on Hampstead Christmas lights
CELEBRITY and sport will come together to bring Christmas cheer to Hampstead next month.
Hampstead Garden Suburb resident Mr Ross will join the former Arsenal player to switch on the lights in the High Street next month.
The switching on ceremony will take place alongside a host of other events which will show the best of what the Hampstead community and traders have to offer.
Father Christmas will also drop in offering sleigh rides and restaurants and traders will have stalls lining the road – closed off to traffic.
Mr Ross will be joined in the ceremony by former Arsenal player Robert Pires.

The lights will be switched on at 4.15pm on the 20ft tree.
