Here at Rainbow HQ the month of November keeps us even busier than usual, co-ordinating the presence of famous children’s characters at festive events up and down the country. Christmas Lights Switch-ons within shopping centres. Family-orientated activities on High Streets organised by local councils and Business Improvement Districts (BIDs). Retailers unveiling their Christmas window displays. Radio stations sponsoring festive community events. The list goes on.
Sunday 20 November also marks the return of the hugely popular Hamleys’ Christmas Toy Parade.
Planning for the 2016 Parade has been underway for months and Rainbow Productions is thrilled to again be working with Hamleys and toy and licensing brand owners on this large-scale central London event.
So if you find yourself in London on Sunday 20 November, keep an eye out for record numbers of famous licensed children’s characters – from the world of television, film, publishing and online – all taking part in the Hamleys’ Christmas Toy Parade along Regent Street.
