Regent Street Christmas LightsA modern take on the 1954 Regent Street Christmas Lights, this year's scheme - named 'The Spirit of Christmas' - pays homage to the earliest Christmas lights display in London. The largest scheme ever embarked on by Regent Street, the lights will be switched on by Holly Willoughby and include 16 large Spirits with a 17-metre wing span and 15-metre train of lights stretching behind. For the first time, the lights will form part of a wider scheme that runs the length of Regent Street, across Piccadilly and into St James's, with complementary schemes across Jermyn Street and at the newly-completed St James's Market. A fireworks display marks the moment the lights are switched on. Traffic-free for the occasion, the street has a great, festive atmosphere and the lights are set off beautifully against the regal sweep of John Nash's famous shopping street.

 

About Regent Street

Don't be put off by the fact that Nash's sweeping design for Regent Street was inspired as a means of separating the riff-raff (Soho) from the well to do (Mayfair) back in the 1800s. Home to a number of large outlets offering everything from toys and trench coats to fabrics and food, Regent Street is a great place to window shop if nothing else. More about Regent Street
