What Went On At The Carnaby Christmas Shopping Party With Grazia
Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who came down and partied with us at the Carnaby Christmas Shopping Party with Grazia and the Launch of Christmas on Thursday 12 November!
Here is our run down on all the fantastic festivities that went on during the party:
The 13 streets of Carnaby were filled with party-goers in high spirits for the ultimate Christmas Shopping Party. Ticket holders enjoyed 20% off in over 100 shops, bars, restaurants and cafés, as well as complimentary drinks, in-store DJs, makeovers, nibbles and more.
At 6.30pm, Carnaby visitors were wowed by the incredible launch of Christmas with the lights turns on and confetti cannons filling the skies with glitter. With DJ sets from Scratch Perverts and Horse Meat Disco, live music from brass band Perhaps Contraption, and High Rollaz skating around the party throughout the night, the Shopping Party was in full swing.
Did you visit 56 Carnaby Street? If so, you may have caught Grazia’s Josh Newis-Smith hosting his Joshington Post Live. Talking about style, the Grazia Style Hunters were on the hunt for the most stylish bunch of party people who were rewarded with 1 of 200 Carnaby goodie bags worth £200.
A party wouldn’t be complete without a cocktail - ticket holders enjoyed a complimentary Pisco Sour at the Señor Ceviche pop-up bar. And complimentary nuts, pick n mix and spiced cider were available on Kingly Street and in the Newburgh Quarter to get attendees in the Christmas mood.
Dance machines were free to show off your best disco moves, and the giant 3D mirrored #CARNABY letters were popular with your selfies, remembering to share them using the matching hashtag! Snapshot memories of the night could be taken home thanks to the pink glitter photobooth on Broadwick Street - did you share yours using #Carnbay #ShoppingParty?
