Those golden angel-shaped lights will be making a glorious comeback and soar high above Regent Street once more. The grand Christmas lights switch-on is on Thursday November 15. To mark the occasion, the street will be traffic-free between 5.30pm and 9pm, with loads of festive events and activities going on in nearby shops. This year’s star-studded event will be hosted by Heart London’s Jamie Theakston and Sian Welby, with very special guest Jodie Whittaker from ‘Doctor Who’ and performances by singer Calum Scott and the amazing cast of West-End musical ‘Dreamgirls’.
This is the largest Christmas light show in the capital, so make sure you get there early to bag a good spot, and see this festive transformation shine brighter than ever.
The Regent Street Christmas lights switch-on is on Thu Nov 15, 5.30pm-9pm. Free.
