Know this was amazingly popular last year & the organisers have promised it will be even better this year. Not many details have been released other than the date it will be held which is Sunday 19th November, but the whole street will be pedestrianised for a day of family-friendly fun, and the organisers are promising a return of ‘much-loved characters, colourful floats, giant balloons and even a visit from Santa himself.


Update 14/11

Ferdinand tells the story of a giant bull with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies a misfit team on the ultimate adventure.

This November come down and see the bull with a big heart at the Hamleys Christmas Toy Parade. Join in the festive fun and watch as Ferdinand makes his way down Regent Street. You can then visit the gentle giant for a photo opportunity and a chance to receive a special Ferdinand mask and activity set.

Kai's impulsive personality, fierce temper and immense drive mirror the fire within him. His strong sense of justice makes him stubborn and he'll stop at nothing if he has put his mind to it; but this is also the source of his bravery. As older brother to Nya, he is overprotective of her. While Kai's self-confidence can be overwhelming to some people, this makes him one of the leaders and big personalities in the group.

Kai is the last young ninja to join Master Wu's ninja training. His impatience with training is significant, as Lord Garmadon has kidnapped his sister. However, while he quickly becomes a skillful warrior and is the first to tame his dragon, he discovers that impatience is the enemy of a great ninja...

Sounds interesting. Cheers.

Nice, thanks for the info, heat from me

Shall try and go this year😄

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that the date was announced 6+ months ago as part of the programme of Regent Street events calendar for July through to January (as the flyer is on my fridge!). There is also the Regent Street Motor Show coming up on 4th November and Lumiere Festival will be on in January.

Had a fab time last year, the singing and fireworks were great.

Thanks for the tip. Hot

Thanks!

Is this going to be televised. Please

Shouldn't this be under freebies?
I wonder why it's allowed to stay here?

You're right. My point was that it was within her Editor role this was shared and that is makes no difference the title. Especially considering this was already in the right section

Just returned from a weekend in London and attended the Hamleys parade. Never again!!! Not a policeman in sight and people getting crushed. Wife ended up calling the police. Thousands upon thousands descending upon regent street. Shame on you Hamley's!! Better plan better next year or someone might die.

Agree..this was not worth going too... Long waiting queues every where in the cold weather...and the stage show was cancelled too ..what a shame...

I went to this, it was trash. Why was everything a queue. No characters just roaming around despite the road being closed.

Bloody waste of time I tell ya.
