Oxford Street Christmas Lights


If you’re ready to feel festive this November, head to Oxford Street for their annual, iconic Christmas lights. The big switch-on always draws a huge crowd—around 1 million! This is the 60th year the famous shopping street has been lit up for the festive season, and there are some big changes on the cards.

Head over at dusk to see the brand new “light curtain” decorations, made with around 220,000 twinkling LED lights. They’re not just impressive to look at either—they’re expected to use 90% less energy than the conventional lights used in previous years.

If you’re willing to brave the crowds, there are also plenty of bargains to be had, as many Oxford Street retailers are putting on exclusive one-night-only offers and events. There’ll also be in-store live performances from some of the UK’s premier hip-hop, grime and R&B talent, courtesy of Capital XTRA.

Don’t miss the gaudy lights on neighbouring Regent Street while you’re in the area!
