Christmas Wrapped Up on Regent Street
On 13 November, Regent Street London W1 will continue its celebration of the London 2012 legacy as Team GB and ParalympicsGB switch on the world famous Regent Street Christmas lights. Medal winners including Olympic Long Jump gold medallist Greg Rutherford and Paralympic couple Sarah and Barney Storey will switch on the new design for 2012 with 40 of their teammates, creating a delicate and dazzling array of lights in a traditional display, telling the story of the 12 days of Christmas to create the ultimate magical Christmas shopping experience. Decorated with gold holly and red berry garlands, celebratory tributes to the Olympic and Paralympic teams will hang from the sky, and interspersed along the street gold filigree plaques will tell the story of the traditionally known Christmas song the Twelve days of Christmas.
