A sky full of stars: Oxford Street Christmas lights return

11 October 2022

If you’re already dusting off your Christmas decorations and wondering exactly when the Oxford Street lights will be switched on, you’re in luck! The iconic ‘sky full of stars’ display will return from 2 November 2023, with thousands of brilliant, white stars providing the perfect backdrop to explore this festive destination.

This year, we’re proud to partner with children’s charity Starlight to shine a light on the power of play. Sponsor a star for your partner, best friend or grandmother – or make a contribution at one of the tap-and-donate points on Oxford Street – to help Starlight brighten up a child’s hospital stay this festive season.

The Christmas light scheme is once again environmentally conscious and has been repurposed from last year. The display is made up of more than 300,000 LED light bulbs and recycled materials, making them 75% more energy efficient than traditional bulbs. What’s more, the sky will be illuminated from 3pm to 11pm each day to cut energy consumption.

Experience Oxford Street’s free light display until early January and watch this space for stellar experiences on street and in store throughout the festive season. See you there!
