Carnaby Street is known for its rockin’ history, but do you know that they have the biggest Christmas shopping party in London? This year I hear it’s gonna get loud. I mean really loud.
For this week’s #FaLaLaFriday, I’m making sure you are singing loud AND shopping smart by giving you all the details on how to rock out your Christmas via Carnaby Street.
This area, covering 13 streets, is known for throwing huge shopping parties. If you’re an avid Sunny in London reader, you’ve heard about a few on the blog. What makes them so epic?
From 5-9pm on Thursday, November 13th over 150 brands, restaurants and bars will get together to throw this year’s ‘Music and Fashion’ themed party, which is sure to get Fa La La La LOUD!
I registered for my free ticket to the event last week, but you can click here to register for one too. This ticket will give you a 20% discount in participating stores. How’s that for a #FaLaLaFriday deal?!
Why you should attend this year’s Carnaby Christmas Party:
– Over 50 DJ sets will take place
– It’s more than just a shopping party. This night will be about shopping, fashion and social media! #Carnaby on everything you do, Sunny friends! Trust me, their social media accounts are tons of fun when it comes to engagement.
Advice for attending the Carnaby Christmas Shopping Party:
– Look Hot! There will be ‘style hunters’ combing the crowds for best dressed shoppers. You need to look edgy and fun, Sunny friends. That is, if you want to have your picture taken by the team and the chance to win an exclusive goodie bag worth £200. Oh yeahhhhh!
– Find a great place to stand around 6:30pm because that’s when they’ll be flipping on the famous Carnaby Street Christmas lights. I stopped by last week to see how things were progressing. I can’t wait to see what will fill the Carnaby Street sky!
– Get to Benefit early! I’ve been to previous shopping parties and Benefit gets packed fast.
– Practice your filmmaking skills. The Carnaby team wants a 20 second Instagram video of the shopping party. If you tag it with #Carnaby and #ShoppingParty, your skillz might win you £250 to spend in Carnaby and a Lomography 360 camera. Snap!
New stores for the Carnaby Christmas Shopping Party:
