Red face Wiring multiple lights to a single plug

Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone would be able to offer some advice on a project I would like to attempt.

I am trying to make my own "Hollywood style" mirror with lights, and was thinking of using 18-21 lights in e14/ses lamp holders on a frame.

Would it be possible to have these lights on one socket? Are there any risks of doing it this way? If so, is there a better way to do this?

The bulbs I am intending to use are LED 4W 240V bulbs.

Someone recommended blue-white wire, but I'm not sure what this really means.

If anyone could offer some advice, I'd be very grateful.

Welcome to the forums. This is primarily a North American forum. There may be no one here who can definitively advise you on UK code related requirements.
