The team at Continental Travelnurse is looking forward to the holidays. This year, the festivities are kicking off earlier than ever with the Regent Street Christmas Light Switch taking place on November 8 starting at 5 p.m. Yes, it's an excuse to start shopping (not that we need one), but it's also a fun free night out with loads of celebrities and musical performers. If you're in London or looking for a day trip, this is a good one.
Actor Bill Nighy is one of the hosts and the musical guests include Kelly Clarkson, X Factor winner Max Cardle (whose debut album has just hit stores), the West End Gospel Choir and the cast of the West End Michael Jackson musical Thriller. Don't worry if you can't get there on November 8. The lights are lit up every night through the end of the year.
Here's a look at all the fun of the Regent Street Christmas Light Swtich during LAST year's event. Let us know if you're going!
