The Regent Sreet switch-on of the Christmas lights will be taking place on Sunday 16 November with a host of celebrity guests and thousands of visitors flocking to the street to enjoy the entertainment.
This year Regent Street have partnered with 20th Century Fox to celebrate the release of their new family film ‘Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb,’ which promises even more adventure than before. Once again Regent Street will be closed to traffic from 12:00 – 18:00 to make way for an exciting day of fun and entertainment for the entire family.
In the lead up to the switch on, Regent Street will host several family activities to keep visitors entertained throughout the day. City Academy, one of London’s leading performing arts academies, will showcase their talents and will encourage visitors to join in their workshops held all day from 12:00 – 18:00.
Children will get the opportunity to meet some of their favourite film characters including Skipper and Kowalski from the hit animation ‘Penguins of Madagascar,’ and Toothless from ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2’. Our sponsors for the festivities, 20th Century Fox will also invite visitors to take selfies with the film characters positioned along Regent Street.
