Oxford Street Christmas LightsThe crowd-pulling Oxford Street Christmas Lights switch-on takes place on 6th November, lighting up London's most famous shopping street with 1,778 baubles and 750,000 LED energy-efficient bulbs. Celebrity presenters and star performers take to the stage at John Lewis Oxford Street as the Christmas lights are switched on with music supplied by a chosen act from the Talent Starts Here campaign which supports up-and-coming talent. Let's see if they can top last year's billing when Capital FM presenters Lisa Snowdon and Dave Berry hosted the event and Jessie J, Conor Maynard and X-Factor winner James Arthur performed live outside the iconic Selfridges store.

 

About Oxford Street

The opening of Debenhams and Selfridges in 1909 marked the beginning of the street's dominance as a shopping centre. More about Oxford Street
