Take a walk on the wild side. This spring, Carnaby’s iconic arch has been transformed once again and will play host to some of the world's most loved wildlife.
See blue whales, tigers, walruses, an orangutan and an elephant pop-up on the Carnaby arch, marking the countdown to Earth Hour, the world's biggest switch off event.
Taking place on Saturday 30 March at 8.30pm, Carnaby will be joining the hundreds of millions of people around the world taking part in Earth Hour, in switching off lights for 60 minutes to highlight the areas of natural beauty and wildlife that are at risk from the effects of climate change, pollution, and overconsumption. For the second year, see Carnaby’s lights switch off including the iconic Giant Plug and Bulbs on Ganton Street, and Julian Opie’s street art piece ‘Shaida Walking’, in a bid to give a #VoiceForThePlanet.
Helping to protect the planet by taking part in Earth Hour on 30 March will be Dr. Martens, who are turning off their interactive window screens, whilst Pittabun will be switching off their lights and serving a special bun. Joy Everley Fine Jewellery will have 10% off of their panda charms from 25-30 March and candlelit shopping on 30 March. You will also be able to enjoy the Clear Belu Waters and Belu Havana cocktails at Whyte & Brown from 25-30 March, where £1 from every cocktail will be donated to WaterAid in partnership with Belu Water. Spanish tapas and charcuterie specialist Dehesa, Peruvian hotspot Señor Cerviche and Venetian restaurant Polpo will be switching off their lights during Earth Hour and serving dinner under candlelight - what better way to spend date night? Newly opened Columbia Sportswear will be taking part with their #SwitchOffAndReconnect campaign where they will be encouraging everyone to switch off their lights for Earth Hour and hosting a special activation in-store.
Stay tuned for even more information on different activities happening in Carnaby for Earth Hour this year.
