The World on Regent StreetClearing one of London's busiest streets of all traffic, The World on Regent Street welcomes visitors from across the world to party on the street. With countries such as Argentina, China, Egypt, Great Britain and Turkey all taking part, there will be a whole host of variety performances to enjoy. There will be carnival dancers, folkloric performances and an array of traditional dishes from each of the countries. Visitors will be able to feast on premium cured meats from Argentina, witness Chinese Kung Fu demonstrations, join in the carnival with Trinidad and Tobago's rhythm for dance competition and try the AussieMite savoury cupcakes. Representing Great Britain will be dynamic duo Wallace and Gromit, featuring a hot air balloon that will hover high above the street and the chance to enjoy a number of their favourite cheeses.

 

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
