Traders are being invited to get involved in the first-ever Hammersmith Christmas Market on Saturday 2 December.
It’s a fantastic opportunity to get into the festive spirit and bring some extra sparkle to Hammersmith.
There will be over 100 stalls along a traffic-free King Street and in Lyric Square offering seasonal gifts and food. The wintertime fun will be boosted by live music, carol singing and a visit from Santa.
The inaugural festival follows the celebrated success of Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s pedestrian-friendly North End Road Market events, which regularly attract 15,000 visitors and have helped to revitalise trade and community spirit in Fulham.
“It will be a great opportunity for local residents to get a headstart on their Christmas shopping and enjoy a wonderful day out,” said Cllr Andrew Jones, H&F Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Regeneration.
“Our pedestrian-friendly markets are proving very popular with both residents and business owners and make a fantastic contribution to our drive to make H&F the greatest place to live, work and shop in Europe.”
