Christmas in Covent Garden starts on 7th November

Christmas in Covent Garden starts on 7th November: "Covent Garden’s Christmas lights are set to rival the displays on nearby Regent Street and Oxford Street, so come on down to the Piazza on Wednesday at 6.30 pm for the big switch-on.

The towering Christmas tree will shimmer with 50,000 red baubles, and the Market Building will be transformed into a festive wonderland with oversized decorations including candy canes and mirrorballs. More than 150,000 pea lights will sparkle above the heads of shoppers, creating a dazzling illumination that starts in the Piazza and fans out along Russell, James, King and Henrietta Streets."
