We'll even be hosting live DJ sets from our Capital XTRA breakfast presenters Yinka and Shayna Marie and we want to see YOU there, so register for your chance to be at one of these amazing shows right here.
Speaking about the big Christmas lights switch-on, Yinka and Shayna Marie said, “We are so excited to get the Christmas party started for one of the most iconic shopping streets in Europe. We’ll be bringing the high energy and banging tunes from our Capital XTRA breakfast show to kick things off and will be watching the incredible line up of breakthrough acts take to the stores and will no doubt give shoppers performances to remember.."
The new lighting scheme is the first in six years and features 27 spectacular LED light curtains draped over the length of the street, made up of 220,000 sparkling lights and showcasing the latest in progressive LED technology.
