Toyah Willcox kicks off Christmas at Millennium Point with lights switch on

Millennium Point’s Christmas lights were officially switched on by Birmingham-born music icon, Toyah Willcox, at the award-winning conference and events venue last week (08 November).

On 08 November, over 200 people filled Millennium Point’s atrium for the official light switch on and an evening of entertainment and networking. The 39ft Christmas tree was officially illuminated by musical icon Toyah Wilcox, famed for hits such as It’s a Mystery and I Want to Be Free, and her husband Robert Fripp, legendary musician of rock band King Crimson, alongside Millennium Point’s CEO, Abbie Vlahakis.

Alongside the festive lights switch on, which marked the beginning of Christmas in the city, the evening also included a special performance from Gospel Choir of the Year Award winners, the Birmingham Community Gospel Choir, who have recently appeared on The One Show and BBC Sports Personality Of The Year.

Christmas continues at Millennium Point with its upcoming festive events, including screenings of festive favourites such as The Holiday, paired with a Bottomless Prosecco Brunch, Elf, coupled with themed cocktails by The Wine Events Company, and The Polar Express, complete with a special Santa experience, on its 14m wide Auditorium screen, as well as its Festive Silent Disco.
