The Switch on of The Regent Street Christmas Lights

From 5.30pm on Tuesday 13 November, London's Regent Street will continue its celebration of the London 2012 legacy as Team GB and ParalympicsGB switch on the world famous Regent Street Christmas lights.

At the flick of the switch, a new design for 2012 will light the night sky, creating a delicate and dazzling array of lights which will evoke traditional Christmas nostalgia for the ultimate magical Christmas shopping experience.  Decorated with gold holly and red berry garlands, celebratory tributes to the Olympic and Paralympic teams will hang from the sky, and interspersed along the street gold filigree plaques will tell the story of the twelve days of Christmas.

The evening’s events and entertainment will begin from 5.30pm with a choral performance of the ’12 days of Christmas’ followed by stars from the West End show Matilda entertaining the crowds. In partnership with Classic FM, our very own John Suchet and Jamie Crick, introducing the likes of Tine Ting Helseth and The Masques, will welcome a host of world-class talent. The acts will then be followed by a stunning performance by renowned opera singer, Noah Stewart. The stars will be joined on stage by over 30 medal winning Olympic and Paralympic athletes in a spectacular finale to London 2012.
