Connections and public realm

15 of 25 Principle 15

Principle 15:

Encourage spectacle and delight by allowing space for informal events that are characteristic of Oxford Street.

Example actions:

Allocate spaces for informal performance and spectacle at appropriate locations along Oxford Street and in underused public spaces off the street itself that will alleviate the pressure on footways and draw people through the district.

Ensure that everyone can find something to entertain them within the district – a free concert, a talented busker or an outdoor art exhibition, for example – whether they are a resident, or have come here to shop, learn or work.
