Choose Love Pops-Up in Carnaby
Christmas shopping is going to be a little different this year, at Choose Love as they encourage everyone to shop their heart out and, leave with nothing, and feel the love. The store has returned for its second year in Soho and is run by Help Refugees' volunteers. Products include warm clothing, food and sleeping bags, all to give to those who need it. Show your love by heading down to the store at 32 Foubert's Place.
Tenison Court Light Installation
Carnaby is about to get even more colourful with the new Tension Court Light Installation. Walk down the white light filled street to see your shadow split into a rainbow of colours. The magic happens through a projection of primary colour lights which produces secondary coloured shadows where the two primary colours overlap. The combination of all three primary colours in equal intensities makes the light white.
You will find Tension Court in the street that connects Kingly Street to Regent Street opposite Kingly Court. We can’t wait to see what photos you all come up with so make sure to tag @CarnabyLondon to join the conversation!
