Watch the six-month process to capture The Spirit of Christmas, putting craft back at the centre of London’s seasonal display of lights…

In the not-so-distant past, the seasonal lights in London’s West End were nothing if not honest: cheap and glitzy tie-ins with movie franchises that put commerce firmly at the centre of the Christmas message.

But no more. This year, the largest display of lights in Central London – following Regent Street down to Waterloo Place St James’s – instead aim to capture The Spirit of Christmas through the creativity of a crack team of model makers, animators, welders and craftsmen from across Britain. Tasked with injecting a bit of class and magic back into some of the city’s busiest streets, James Glancy Design Ltd took their inspiration from the more design-led lighting displays of 1954, when retailers and businesses in the West End organised and financed the first display to liven up a drab post-war London.
