When

Sunday 24th November 2012

Where

Oxford Street and Regent Street

Please note this event will not be taking place in 2013

For one day only, the West End is being transformed into a huge car-free pedestrian shopping extravaganza in the traffic free shopping day London event. The whole of Oxford Street will be closed to traffic for a day of entertainment, shopping and festivities. After considerable success in previous years, the pedestrian shopping day returns again for the 2012 Christmas season.

Very Important Pedestrians
Letting pedestrians reclaim Oxford Street and Regent Street, the traffic free shopping day London event promises to be a day of hassle free shopping for Londoners. There's lots of entertainment on show including a range of VIP treats, games, carol singing and activities for kids and families, and the very best live music. Nearby Bond Street will also be joining in with shopping promotions and special events.

Live entertainment
The traffic free shopping day features live street entertainment with a selection of performers taking to the streets in festive style. Expect a vibrant, upbeat day of shopping in one of London's most popular shopping districts as the West End celebrates the approaching festive season in style.

The freedom to shop
We all know how busy the West End can get in the run up to Christmas and it’s a bit of an understatement to say that the pavements can get crowded during peak shopping hours. In the traffic free shopping day London event the entire West End shopping district will be exclusively for pedestrians, with no road traffic at all on the day.

Christmas shopping
Londoners can go on the hunt for treats to pamper themselves with as well as the perfect gifts for friends and family at the traffic free shopping day London event. With no cars, buses or taxis to worry about you can go from shop to shop in ease and worry about the serious business of Christmas gift hunting.

Festive fun
Oxford Street is celebrating Christmas in grand style once again in 2012, with beautiful Christmas lights and festive window displays that are bound to attract the crowds. During the car free shopping day and throughout the Christmas period there are plenty of in-store special offers and promotions, so keep your eyes peeled for the best bargains in December.

Entertainment in store
The Christmas 2012 traffic free shopping day features a range of special offers and promotions from big name stores such as Selfridges, House of Fraser, Primark, John Lewis and Debenhams. Other stores where you can indulge in some much needed retail therapy include Mango, Topshop, French Connection, Tommy Hilfiger and Zara.

The traffic free shopping day London event takes place from 8am – 8pm, Sunday 24th November 2012. Both Oxford Street and Regent Street will be closed to traffic throughout the day.
