We know many of you love our Christmas lights, with the moment that the Spirits light up central London truly marking the start of the festive season. This year, we’re pleased to confirm ‘The Spirit of Christmas’ scheme will return to the capital, with our stunning Spirits soaring through the skies above the St James's and Regent Street neighbourhoods.

‘The Spirit of Christmas’ will be lit from the 9 November 2023, with the displays switched on from early evening for a more sustainable display.

Crafted by James Glancy Desing Ltd, discover more than 40 unique Spirits across Regent Street and St James's. Be sure to visit St James's Market, Glasshouse Street, Swallow Street and Quadrant Arcade to see this year's newest additions.
