Halloween is out of the way, and the countdown to Christmas is on. This year we have created a Christmas shop on the website, with 7 ideas for 7 people in your life. We have included a variety of things, so please take a look. As London gears up to the festive season, check out the London Christmas Lights, Christmas windows and our Super Seven for some festive fun before we run into December.
I’m going to start with a couple of shopping events, because Christmas isn’t Christmas without some advance shopping! The first is Seven Dials on 16 November with a Christmas light up, food, the alternative Choir, Some Voices belting out a few tunes. The second is St Martin’s Courtyard on 23 November. They unveil a new light installation with a 10 piece brass band with festive music & a glass of prosecco. The difference with both these events is that surrounding shops offer some really good discounts on the night.
Ballie Ballerson is a kidult ball pit in Old Street. So if the inner child in you is screaming to get out, do it here with 1 million balls to get lost in. There’s a bar too!
