Carnaby is pulling out all the stops to throw the biggest Christmas party in London to launch its world famous Christmas installations on Thursday 12 November.

This year’s theme is all about the party. Carnaby, renowned for it’s unsponsored and innovative Christmas decorations, will be showing off its fun side with a disco-style event. Never one to stick to tradition, illuminating the skyline of the streets this year will be giant glitter balls to get everyone in the dancing mood this festive season. Carnaby is famed for its music heritage, so how better to celebrate Christmas, than with a disco themed extravaganza.

The party theme will continue into Kingly Court, Carnaby’s food hub situated just off Carnaby Street, where thousands of sparkly lights will scatter the three floors of independent, concept restaurants, bars and cafés.

To reflect the heritage brands and distinctive cobbled streets, The Newburgh Quarter will be dressed in Christmas trees with a disco twist of bright-lit stars. Don’t forget to register for your free party ticket at Carnaby.co.uk. The Christmas installations will be launched at 6.30pm from a glitterball stage in the middle of Carnaby Street hosted by the industry’s hottest DJs. Enjoy the party from 5-9pm with over 100 shops, bars and restaurants offering 20% off as well as over 50 free and fun in-store activities. Throughout the night, free activities and entertainment will include DJs, a free pop-up bar on Ganton Street and goodie bags worth £200.
