Did you go to Regent Street last night to see the Christmas lights being switched on? We put on our mittens and went along to hear music from Joe McElderry and the cast of Jersey Boys, and a special appearance by cast members of the new film The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. At one point there was a little flurry of snow, but we’re not sure if it was real, fake, or we imagined it!

If you love shopping on Regent Street, don’t forget that it’s West End VIP Day on the 27th November. Check out our round up of London’s best Christmas lights and Christmas trees if you’re looking for some sparkle!

    Despite being in London for several years, this was the first time I made it to a Christmas light switch on. Good work by the cast of Jersey Boys!

    I’ve done the Oxford Street ones before (as in attended the ceremony not switched them on myself), but never Regent Street, and I have to say despite my local pride for Oxford Street, Regent looks much much better this year. I find those gift box things on Oxford Street to be very unspectacular.
