Regent Street - Christmas Lights Switch On.

On the evening of Tuesday 9th November I attended the Regent Street Christmas lights switch on and they never fail to amaze.

The Regent Street Association who works with The Crown Estate has a history of attracting some of the worlds most celebrated stars. This year, radio DJs Jamie Theakston and Harriet Scott hosted a festive extravaganza to celebrate the release of the new 3D family film, Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, as Regent Street is transformed into a winter wonderland for lucky Londoners. There was also plenty to keep the crowds entertained before the main event with more celebrity appearances from three British stars of the film, Ben Barnes, Georgie Henley and Will Poulter, X Factor contestant Joe McElderry and live music from singer Alexis Jordan, the cast of the Jersey Boys and the West End Gospel Choir.
As well as giving pleasure to local residents the Christmas lights will no doubt attract thousands of shoppers throughout the festive season, making for one of the major tourist attractions in London this Christmas, and is one of the many events which makes this time of year so special in West End Ward.
