London Harrods Becomes the Emerald City

People who shop at Harrods in London are used to turning others green with envy but this Christmas, the whole store will be turning green with emeralds! To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the classic film, Harrods in London will transform itself into the Emerald City from the Wizard of Oz, ready for Christmas.

All of the 11,500 white bulbs on the Harrods façade will turn green on Thursday 29 October to mark the beginning of London's Christmas retail period. Dannii Minogue will do the honours of starting the enchanting illuminations alongside the famous Harrods Chairman, Mohammed Al Fayed.

Straying from the yellow brick road, Dorothy and friends will spread magic through Knightsbridge London as they attend special launches and exclusive events during the Christmas festivities.

Harrods Emerald Palace will also be doing its bit for charity by supporting Great Ormond Street Children's Charity, helping to share the Christmas magic with children in need. All our London hotels are in the city centre, within easy walking distance of Harrods. Mercure London Kensington Hotel is just 15 minutes away by foot and all our Paddington hotels, such as Mercure London Paddington Hotel and Hotel Indigo London-Paddington, are a short walk across the beautiful Hyde Park. So, after you've laden yourself in Harrods Emerald City, you can make the simple journey back to one of our luxury central London hotels.

The Harrods Christmas lights are a dazzling part of Christmas that really gives London the festive sparkle and fills shoppers with the Christmas spirit. Make sure you get a chance to see the magical Harrods Christmas lights but beware the Wicked Witch of the West!
