Carnaby Christmas Makeover 2022

Famed for their mesmerising winter installations, Carnaby is preparing to light up once again this November. 

You can’t beat the lead up to Christmas time in London. Every street is draped with flurries of lights, Santa lines every street corner and mulled wine fills the air, but one London destination that gets it spot on every year is Carnaby. 

Since 1997, the West End destination has brought joy to festive shoppers through their innovative and magical light displays. The streets have seen everything from underwater seascapes to colourful rainbows, oversized fairy lights to giant snowmen, 60s inflatables and a kaleidoscope of butterflies to collabs with two of the world’s most famous bands: the Rolling Stones and Queen. And this year is no exception: Carnaby will be celebrating those iconic moments from the past 25 years with a breathtaking medley of the most coveted pieces. 

The installation will be illuminated from Tuesday 8th November with an exciting shopping and dining party, 5-9pm.

Carnaby Celebrates’ is in collaboration with charity partner Choose Love, to highlight and support the urgent need to raise funds for refugees around the world. Choose Love will have a shop at 15-17 Foubert’s Place selling a collection of limited edition products, along with refugee gifting packages, with a constant stream of celebrity guests popping in to serve customers. 

Over 100 shops, bars and restaurants will come together, with live music, in-store activations and 20% discounts available from 5-9pm.
