Sean Bean and Jon Culshaw to turn on Hampstead Christmas lights

Hollywood A-lister Sean Bean and comedian Jon Culshaw will turn on the Hampstead Christmas lights this weekend.

Thousands of people will descend on Hampstead on Sunday as the village is transformed into a winter wonderland for what is expected to be the biggest and best Christmas festival yet.

Lord of the Rings actor Mr Bean and impressionist Mr Culshaw will add the celebrity sparkle to the event and will switch on the lights after a performance by Shrek and Princess Fiona from the West End musical.
