World famous Christmas lights
The Oxford Street Christmas lights are among the most famous in the world, each year attracting thousands to the West End over the Christmas and New Year period. A definite highlight of Christmas in London, the lights will be switched on during the evening of Thursday 6th November 2014 outside the Selfridges department store.

See the lights on Oxford Street
The Oxford Street Christmas lights are traditionally switched on by a lineup of popular celebrities who come out to meet the crowds at the start of Christmas. Head to the West End with friends and family and cheer on the special guests who will be flicking the switch and turning on the Oxford Street illuminations for another Christmas. This year, Cheryl Fernandez Versini will be on hand to flick the switch and boy band Rixton and singer songwriter Jess Glynne will also be there to lend the event that essential glitzy air so make sure you turn up early to catch a glimpse of these fantastic stars in person.

Live music on the night
With a programme of live music and entertainment heralding the start of the festive season at this year's Oxford Street event, you can bask in the cheerful glow of the lights and look forward to weeks of carol singing, festive fairs and more Christmassy events around London. The lights on Oxford Street are amongst the first to be turned on, kickstarting the 2014 festive season in grand style. This year, Londoenrs can look forward to seeing the stars from the hit musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory performing live at the event, as 2014 promises another spectacular lineup.

Christmas shopping on Oxford Street
The switching on of the Oxford Street Christmas lights takes place in the early evening, so there'll still be enough time for some late night shopping at the flagship stores lining the world famous street. Make the most of the opportunity to get some Christmas shopping out of the way and browse the 300 plus shops on Oxford Street under the glow of festive lights.
