Harrods Christmas Parade, 2 Nov 2013


For the Christmas festive season 2013, GC Privé is partnering with Knightsbridge neighbours Harrods Department Store and Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park to sprinkle sparkle and bring the magic of Christmas dreams’ alive.

Keeping an eye on its younger visitors, families staying at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park will be given exclusive access to the Harrods Parade Day celebrations marking the store’s official launch of Christmas, taking place on Saturday 2 November 2013.

Families staying at Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park will be part of the magic, with VIP access to view the parade as it weaves its way through Knightsbridge led by Father Christmas. They will be the first to glimpse the most celebrated Christmas windows in the world as they are unveiled, as well as have a personal appointment to meet with Father Christmas on the day he arrives at the Harrods Grotto.

As part of the Christmas fairytale, Harrods will festively transform the public spaces of Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, including the marble Lobby, the Mandarin Bar and Bar Boulud. Taking inspiration from a traditional childhood, and using a red and gold colour palette, the stylish decorations will be unveiled on 30 November 2013, a spectacle for the senses. A huge Christmas tree in The Lobby will be the centrepiece of this year’s stunning display.
