Christmas in Carnaby

#CarnabyChristmas is back!

Were you in Carnaby for the Christmas lights switch on and shopping party on Thursday 9 November? Launched by Carnival DJ legend Norman Jay MBE, shoppers saw the amazing lights switch on to carnival tunes and loads of confetti. Watch our live stream from the night here.

Carnaby Christmas Carnival

This year's installations take the theme of Carnaby Christmas Carnival; with 30 neon coconut trees, 27 giant party poppers, 8 incredible tropical flowers, 8 feathery parrots, 2 colourful toucans, 2 neon flamingos and 1 pair of parkeets, signifying the release of a pair of parakeets by legend Jimi Hendrix in the 60s on Carnaby Street. Can you spot them all?
