Things happen fast in London, pop-ups are all the rage these days and they come and go nearly in the blink of an eye. While many of us were at cinemas across the globe to watch Rami Malek deliver an amazing performance as the iconic Freddie Mercury, world famous Carnaby collaborated with Twentieth Century Fox to promote the release of Bohemian Rhapsody in a dazzling way.
From October to January, Carnaby Street featured the neon glow of the of the lyrics from one of Queen’s greatest hits, Bohemian Rhapsody, along with the Crest Queen used – originally designed by Freddie Mercury himself. Visitors that were lucky enough to stop by the pop-up were immersed in everything Queen from photographs, to live video footage and incredibly detailed costumes. Fans also had the opportunity to purchase official film merchandise available.
While this pop-up has since closed down, some cinemas may still be showing Bohemian Rhapsody near you, if you have not had a chance to watch it, we definitely recommend it!
Carnaby, though no longer has the Queen pop-up, is still worth the visit if you are in the area. Carnaby is one of London’s top shopping and dining districts with over 100 stores and 60 bars, pubs, restaurants, and cafes. Located in London’s West End, Carnaby is comprised of 14 streets and is within short walking distance from the Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus Undergrounds. While they have known stores, they also have quirky stores, which definitely will not disappoint.
Next time you are in London, stop by Carnaby for a wide selection of delicious foods or to find your next treasure.
