Roman Road Christmas Fair [GALLERY]

We wish you a Merry Christmas..!

Roman Road Christmas Fair went off with a big festive boom and attracted loads of local people who came to enjoy themselves and sample all the delights on offer. Of course Father Christmas was here with his merry band of elves, ready to treat the children to an early Christmas pressie while Mrs Christmas and her elfy sidekick stirred up fun, frivolity and a right festive mess. All day the crowds came and enjoyed. They shopped at our Christmas market, chatted, ate delicious street food and imbibed festive treats like mulled wine and homemade marshmallows from local food stars like Vinarius, Roasticini, G. Kelly and The Coffee Room. As ever we were delighted to promote local independent traders, this time also working alongside the East End Trades Guild on Independents Day.

A true community event like this can’t happen and certainly doesn’t shine without the help of a huge number of individuals, businesses and organisations working behind the scenes and providing funding or expertise, time, goods and materials at low or no cost. Put all these ingredients into a big bowl, stir it up and you end up with a big fat fruity community Christmas pudding of a day on Roman Road.
