Not to mention the jam-packed show on stage at Lyric Square, which starts at 10.45am, that includes an a cappella all-female barbershop group and carol singing to name but a few of the acts.

The traffic-free Hammersmith markets follows the success of the council’s car-free seasonal markets in North End Road which have revitalised the 130-year-old high street.

Festive fun

There will be a fun-filled line-up of street performers on the day including the seven-foot tall stilt-walking Robins, Giant Snow Man, the Mistletoe Belles, Hammersmith Morris Dancers and Santa himself strolling down King Street.

While an impressive bill of buskers will play throughout the day across four busking points in King Street including Jonathan Owens and his Spanish guitar, folk singer-songwriter Rosie Ash and Teathetrumpet, the British-Brazilian trumpeter.

Made in H&F

While you are in King Street, why not pop into the new Made in H&F pop-up store at Kings Mall? It’s the newest addition to the shopping centre designed specifically for local artists and designers to showcase their latest creations.
