Oxford Street Christmas Lights
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
You know Christmas is coming when Oxford Street is transformed by sparkly, glowing lights. This year, for the first time in six years, the lights are having a complete overhaul. The area will be lit with 27 LED ‘light curtains’ which will be draped down the length of the street and made up of a total of 222,000 lights.
The arrival of the new designs coincides with the sixtieth edition of the official Christmas lights switch-on, scheduled for the evening of Thursday November 21. Expect a series of instore gigs co-organised with Capital XTRA, with the acts soon to be announced.
