Burlington Arcade in London’s Mayfair continues its 007 alliance as the new festive installation opens this week, designed to celebrate the upcoming 60th anniversary of the franchise. Producer Michael G. Wilson and actor Rory Kinnear turned on the lights at a launch event on Wednesday night.
The arcade started its 007 association in September with an installation celebrating the movie No Time To Die. Now looking towards 2022, the gold and silver festive scheme incorporates a unique Omega clock counting down to the start of Bond’s diamond anniversary year. Guests at the opening night included the film’s co-writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade, and the award-winning composer of five Bond scores, David Arnold.
Until 9th January, visitors to the Burlington Arcade can enjoy a range of Bond-inspired experiences, including a mirrored gun barrel walkway. The first Omega House dedicated to 007, is a haven for Bond fans and watch enthusiasts alike. The space has been designed to emulate the look and feel of M’s office with some familiar props on display. The 007 Bollinger Champagne Bar features a hand-built scale model of the Aston Martin DB5. Boutiques including N.Peal, Globe-Trotter and Crocket & Jones have special displays of luxury 007 merchandise, including the No Time To Die Army Sweater, luggage collection and James shoe.
