St Pancras has played host to some of the world’s biggest music stars of late and it’s continuing to bring together music and the community from today, with the launch of a permanent jukebox boasting every top 40 hit from the past 50 years.
Located underneath the South Eastern Trains platforms (Platforms 11-13), the jukebox installation follows the success of the station’s iconic free-to-use pianos, which have hosted a number of performances from big names including Elton John and John Legend. Whilst waiting for a train, visitors will be able to select from 57,000 free-to-play songs including 1,255 number ones and 18,162 artists.
The Beatles claim the most Top 40 tracks on the jukebox (280), so to mark the launch of the new permanent fixture, visitors will this week be greeted with a colourful, Beatles-inspired installation. Consisting of hollyhock flowers from the station’s florist, Moyses Stevens Flowers, the display pays homage to the iconic Beatles photograph taken during the ‘Mad Day Out’ shoot, just a stone’s throw away from St Pancras almost 50 years ago.
