Imagine a traffic-free Oxford Circus. On a Saturday. With a herd of Santas running down the street, screams of delight flying off the huge Chair-o-Plane in the middle of Regent Street, and all sorts of treats and games scattered around.
You are probably thinking that I am pulling your leg. This can not happen, surely, not that close to Christmas! Well, prepare to be amazed, as the Shop West-End VIP Weekend event is in full mode! Two major streets closed, thousands of stores open, and countless of Christmas lists to tick off!
Yes, it is moderately manic, but it is also a lot of fun! If you have time today or tomorrow, pop down (tube is working), and walk freely up and down the streets!
If however you can not be here, here are some pictures to get you in the festive mode!
