Christmas lights on Regent Street

Christmas lights on Regent Street has been a London tradition since 1948, when the Regent Street Association first decorated the street with Christmas trees, the lacing of the street with lights marks the official countdown to Christmas day. On Saturday 9 November will see the street light up for Christmas, after a traffic-free day of entertainment and shopping.

This year, the lights will be switched on by actor Ty Burrell and Hollywood film director Rob Minkoff. Live performances from Eliza Doolittle, Leona Lewis and other artists will also be taking place throughout the evening. A fashion show along the street at 3pm, featuring many of the famous Regent Street fashion brands, will also be held.

This year's Christmas lights will be themed around the brand new DreamWorks animation film Mr. Peabody and Sherman.
