Airstream and Regent Street are both cultural icons. Now the two come together as Airstream stars in London’s biggest Christmas lights event!
We've sent two Airstream Colorado to the capital to provide backstage hospitality to celebrities appearing at the Regent Street Christmas Lights Switch On.
As well as A-listers, the trailers will also share the limelight with over 300,000 LED lights at the event this Thursday. It's a glittering line-up.
So who will be performing? Pop artist and former The Voice judge Paloma Faith, and singers Michael Ball and Alfie Boe among others.
Spice Girl Emma Bunton and Jaimie Theakston will host.
Colourful lights and polished metal
When the team at Regent Street asked about Airstream making the trip, we were delighted to make it happen.
Airstream is all about adventure and our ‘Live Riveted’ philosophy. The Grand Canyon, The Rockies, Route 66. We’ve been everywhere – and now we can add Regent Street Christmas Lights to those bucket-list landmarks.
The lights themselves were another factor. Airstream looks great beneath bright light: whether that’s the brilliant California sunshine, a high-end professional photography studio, or even the colourful lights of Christmas. The hand-riveted aluminium really twinkles.
Regent Street: The Spirit of Christmas
When Regent Street switched on its lights in 1954 it was the first London street to do so. Since then it has become the capital’s biggest lights-switch on. This year, the street is being pedestrianised from Oxford Circus to Piccadilly Circus. Shops, restaurants and bars will offer a festive welcome, between 4 and 9pm.
Rounding up a busy year
Airstream UK has had a busy couple of months. We’re fresh from our official UK launch at the Motorhome and Caravan Show at Birmingham’s NEC. That was another glitzy event which also saw Airstream sparkle beneath colourful lights – see the video of the Airstream unveiling
