The festival theme is birthdays and together a traffic-free Regent Street and Absolute Radio will provide a fun-packed day on London’s favourite shopping street, with the national radio station bringing one of London’s most loved bands, Madness, to perform an exclusive gig for listeners on Regent Street – the first time the iconic street has been closed for a concert.

The birthday party on Regent Street will mark the start of a series of events Absolute Radio will be staging to celebrate its first birthday. Regent Street is celebrating 180 years of shopping history and many of the stores are celebrating birthdays such as Jaeger 125, Gap 40, Ted Baker 21, Hamleys 250 years of toys, Quiksilver 40, Desigual and Uniqlo 25.
On Regent Street there will be celebrations all day including live performances throughout on the main stage, two giant Birthday cakes made of thousands of cup cakes which will be served at 3pm. Outside Hamleys there will be a children’s lawn which will be home to face painters, animal characters, a birthday tea party, balloon artists and magicians. In addition there will be a fashion show, stiltwalkers, roaming musicians, a ferris wheel, carousel and children’s ride and many street performers to keep the partygoers entertained throughout the day.
