Christmas has come to Harrow, bringing inflatable snowmen, funfair rides and a laser display.

The Mayor of Harrow turned on the festive lights in Harrow town centre on Saturday (November 25).

The switch-on was the culmination of a full day of activities that took place in Greenhill Place and St Anns Road.

Those attending the event were given the opportunity to meet reindeer with their handlers, as well as visit Santa’s Grotto and pose for a selfie by his red sleigh.

In St Anns Road, the cast of Harrow Arts Centre’s Snow White pantomime treated the crowds to some live music.

There was also a meet and greet with local Britain’s Got Talent finalists Romeo and Icy.

But the fun did not stop there - organisers provided funfair rides and a Christmas raffle for attendees to enjoy.

At 6pm, the Mayor of Harrow turned on this year’s Christmas tree lights before the crowds were wowed by a laser show.

The event was organised by Harrow Town Centre BID and paid for by businesses in the town centre.
