Roman Road Christmas Fair 2016
Saturday 3 December, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Christmas is coming and the goose (or butternut squash if you’re veggie) is getting seriously plump…
Roman Road’s Santa’s Grotto
Roman Road Christmas Fair is coming to Roman Road Yard Market on Saturday 3rd December. Centre stage will be Santa, in the sparkliest grotto in East London we’re sure, ready to dole out festive cheer and free gifts to local children. With the help of local businesses Santa has even added some star prizes into the mix, ready to be won by a handful of lucky children.
Christmas Fair Winter Market
Just like the Winter Festival 2014 this year’s fair will be full of seasonal treats to get us all in the festive spirit. Our Winter market will be chock full of perfect pressies from cool jewellery and knitted Christmas decs to vintage maps and local jam, so be sure to bring your list and your Christmas spending money. Our Fair coincides with Small Business Saturday and East End Independents Day so this is the perfect opportunity to support local small businesses and tick off your Christmas shopping at the same time – everybody wins!
Children’s Christmas entertainment
There’ll be loads for the children to do – craft activities aplenty and cheeky elves to keep them on their toes. Mrs Christmas will be joining her husband, quite possibly causing some mischief and there is even a bad cracker joke alert in place. You have been warned. In case Santa doesn’t manage all the right gifts on the day, children can also write him a full list in our Santa’s letter-writing workshop, or they can just tell him how much they love him.
Christmas Fair food and drink
Amid all this festive fun, some of our local food superstars will be here to keep your cockles warmed with delicious fare, and why not look out for top notch hot choc and homemade marshmallows or treat yourself to a lovely cup of spiced mulled wine while you mull over your Christmas shopping.
Accompanying all this festive cheer, choirs of angels and local school children will sing their hearts out for your pleasure. We can’t wait to see you, so polish the sparkles on that festive jumper, jingle your bells and come along!
