Roman Road Christmas Fair 2017
Saturday 16 December, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pmFree
Roman Road’s Christmas Fair is back for the third year for its inimitable mix of community, splendour and fun. Revel in your neighbourhood.
Roman Road’s Santa’s Grotto
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. After last year’s queue to see Santa, there’ll be some added entertainment while children wait.
Christmas Fair Winter Market
Just like the Christmas Fair 2016 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 naturally scented candles and sweet treats, so be sure to bring your list and your Christmas spending money. Many of the traders are local to East London so come along to support small businesses and tick off your Christmas shopping at the same time – everyone is a winner!
Children’s Christmas entertainment
There’ll be loads for the children to do – facepainting and craft activities aplenty as well as cheeky elves to keep them on their toes. Accompanying all this festive cheer, choirs of angels and local school children will sing their hearts out for your pleasure.
Christmas Fair food and drink
Mulled wine, hot chocolate, mince pies. All the festive favourites will be here.
It’s a local affair
Local residents, businesses and community groups are an integral part of the Roman Road Christmas Fair. Local businesses contribute to the Santa’s sack, local residents volunteer to help set up the site, local community groups and causes help put on the event. This is Bow’s big annual jolly that allows you to support and revel in your neighbourhood.
