Throughout November and December 2016, one of London’s best-loved department stores, Liberty, will dedicate their Christmas windows to The Nutcracker.

15 million pedestrians are expected to walk past London’s iconic shop located between Great Marlborough and Regent Street, during the busiest part of the retail season.

Each window of the mock-Tudor building will be inspired by a different moment of The Royal Ballet’s classic Christmas ballet.

If you find yourself on Regent Street for this year’s Christmas shopping, make sure you take a look at the windows – the ballet-themed displays are due to be installed at the end of October and will be unveiled on 6 November 2016.

Be sure to follow our Twitter and Instagram accounts for more updates about The Nutcracker takeover at Liberty.

    I'm glad to see Liberty's have started to resurrect the almost lost art of seasonal window displays. I always used to love visiting London near Christmas and go round the beautiful displays; Selfridges, Fortnum and Masons, Libertys. Quite a few years ago Selfridges had a ballet theme with every window depicting a different ballet. A few years ago Fortnums had a Nutcracker display and, I think, Cinderella on another year. All windows used to attract many admirers and for me it was a part of Christmas.However, latterly most windows are just given over to displays of gifts with little effort even here to display them attractively and with a seasonal theme. Fortnums is the only shop that kept up the tradition of genuine display and even here the Christmas before last seemed to lapse into just displaying gifts though last Christmas's was a bit better. So bravo to Liberty's! Perhaps others will follow their example.

    I saw the the windows today and they are totally stunning.
    I totally agree with the first comment about the Christmas windows and hope to see the other stores soon.
