The Spirit of Christmas lights have been immensely popular with visitors over the past few years with the moment that the Spirits light up central London truly marking the start of the festive season. This year, we’re delighted to confirm that the ‘The Spirit of Christmas’ scheme will return to the West End, with the stunning Spirits soaring through the skies above Piccadilly and St James’s.

‘The Spirit of Christmas’ will be lit from 13 November 2021 – 2 January 2022, with the displays switched on from 2pm to midnight everyday for a more sustainable display.

For plenty of festive ideas, seasonal things to do in the BID, as well as Christmassy things to see and eat to help you to get into the spirit this Christmas in the West End. Ensure you don’t miss a thing by subscribing to our newsletter and following our social channels @theArtofLdn and @DiscoverLSQ.

We’d love to see your Christmas adventures in our neighbourhoods – share your photos with us using #OnlyintheWestEnd.
