Join us in St James’s to celebrate the festive season as we launch our Christmas light installation and late night shopping event. Londoners are invited to get into the holiday spirit with an evening of live music, delicious food, street entertainment and exclusive offers to enjoy along the way.

The dazzling Christmas display will form a warm canopy of light above the streets of St James’s with a series of dramatic, large-scale spirit figures, lit from within with twinkling spotlights, each soaring above the visitors to Jermyn Street, Regent Street St James’s, and St James’s Market.

From 5pm, the entire length of Jermyn Street will be pedestrianised and filled with Christmas themed street entertainment including hot chocolate and churros stations as well as festive performers, all alongside an evening of one-off events in stores and special menus in restaurants across St James’s. Aesop will be offering personalised winter skin consultations, get 20% off Sunspel’s fun collection and visit Quaglino’s for a complimentary glass of champagne.

With multiple stores across St James’s staying open late with offers, activities and gifts, St James’s is the perfect place to start your Christmas shopping. To finish off the evening head to one of the distinctive restaurants or bars in St James’s who will be offering festive menus and drinks especially for the season.

The evening also marks the beginning of four weeks of in-store festive workshops hosted by brands such as Smeg and Aspinal of London. Participants will be able to enjoy a range of fun activities from mulled wine brewing to becoming a master of Christmas calligraphy.
