The World on Regent Street

An exciting new event: 'The World on Regent Street' took place on Sunday 12 May 2013, clearing the street of traffic and welcoming visitors from across the globe to Regent Street.

Countries that took part in this exciting new event include Argentina, China, Egypt, Great Britain, Trinidad and Tobago and Turkey. On top of this, vistors of Regent Street were able to enjoy a variety of other experiences throughout the day inspired by other parts of the world including France, Australia, India, Brazil and America. Offering samples of traditional dishes along with cultural performances in a carnival style atmosphere, the countries took to the street to showcase some of the very best aspects of their culture..

From costumed carnival dancers to Egyptian folkloric performances, Regent Street pulled out all the stops to give visitors a real flavour of each of the participating countries. Much to the delight of many children and adults alike, representing Great Britain were the much-loved Wallace and Gromit. This featured an enormous hot air balloon by Hamley's toy store which towered over Regent Street and a crafts workshop with expert animators on how to recreate the Wallace and Gromit characters at home. 

Along with the variety of acts that performed on the day - incuding dancers from Argentina, Trinidad and Tobago and a troupe of American cheerleaders, visitors enjoyed a sunny day of sampling a range of flavours from across the globe along with a spot of retail therapy down Regent Street. Bringing together a myriad of cultures, all in one place, The World on Regent Street was a great success - a fun filled day for the family.
