The big switch-on for the Oxford Street Christmas lights is always busy, with 40,000 people expected to turn up and go "Oooooh! Aaaaah!".

This year they are going for the same white snowballs they had last year... which was pretty much the same as they had year before that. It's a good job they're not made of real snow because they would have all melted by now.

The street will be closed to traffic during the big switch-on ceremony (6th November, 12 noon to 7 PM, from John Lewis up to Marble Arch -- show starts at 6.15 PM). Craig David has been lined up to switch them on this year, and there will be some live performances from The Vamps, Nathan Sykes and Louisa Johnson. We've also been promised an appearance by My Little Pony and some Transformers characters (seriously!).

Big screens will relay the entertainment for the bazillions of other people standing further down the street.
