It's (nearly!) the most wonderful time of the year. Yes, really. It's time to save the date for Oxford Street's iconic annual Christmas lights switch on! This year, Oxford Street will be switching on over 5,000 sustainable, 100% recyclable stars on Wednesday 2nd November.

London's most famous street will be illuminated for a slightly shorter period each day in a bid to cut energy consumption in the midst of the UK’s cost of living crisis. Oxford Street will also be donating 100 hampers with food, drinks, gifts and necessities from the street's most famous retailers to those who need it the most.
