Hamleys are bringing the magic of Christmas to the festive shopping season on Saturday 28th November.
London’s Regent Street will be transformed in a traffic-free, all-day extravaganza for the biggest toy parade and character meet and greet London has ever seen!
About The Parade!
Celebrating Hamleys 255th birthday and with a cast of hundreds, marching bands, festive floating blimps, street theatre, dancers and toy vehicles accompanied with music from Heart – Hamleys is literally bursting out onto Regent Street!
Parade Start Time: 10:30am
The Parade with free public viewing along the route will start at 10:30am from the Glasshouse Street junction and move north on its way up Regent Street, concluding at Conduit Street / Marlbrourogh St.
Hamleys advise early arrival to avoid disappointment, for safety the street will be closed for access when viewing reaches capacity.
