#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.

Can you spot them all?
