Santa Claus welcoming visitors to the Christmas market

Eat, drink and be merry at North End Road Christmas Market

Here’s your chance to eat, drink and be merry at the North End Road Christmas Market on Sunday 15 December.

From 9am to 5pm you can explore the festive fun-land with more than 150 stalls of seasonal food, drinks and gifts which includes arts and crafts, clothing, fashion accessories and more.

Santa will also be paying a visit to the market in Fulham alongside a packed line-up of street entertainment and live music.

“Come down with all the family to the North End Road Christmas Market,” said Cllr Andrew Jones, H&F Cabinet Member for the Economy and the Arts. “Our popular traffic-free markets have helped put the historic Fulham high street back on the map as we work with residents and businesses to improve North End Road.”

The North End Road Christmas market is a result of the council’s Industrial Strategy (pdf 2.6MB) which aims to make H&F the best place to live, work and socialise in Europe.

Festive fun

The line-up of street performers includes the return of crowd-favourite, Bridie the Tea Lady, demonstrating stilt-walking at its very best. There will also be appearances from Santa’s elves, Mr Cool, Toy Soldiers and the main man himself, Santa.

If music is more your thing, the London Gaelic Choir, Fulham Opera and carols from some of the local churches are a few of the music acts to look out for on the day.

Have a seat

While you are in North End Road, why not check out the new outdoor seating area on the corner of Coomer Place?

After listening to local people’s ideas and suggestions on how we can improve the historic high street, we’ve come up with a list of potential projects. And the temporary seating area, named Crowther Community Garden, is one of them.

It forms part of H&F Council’s community-led redesign of North End Road as we work with businesses, traders and residents to make North End Road a more thriving and welcoming high street.

New pop-up art gallery

It’s also a great opportunity to check out the new pop-up gallery down Fulham Road opposite Fulham Library.

Ad Lib Pop-up Gallery & Boutique has launched its new Christmas Collective which features more than 50 artists, independent boutique retailers and designer-makers.

It will run until Christmas Eve with a new line-up of works to be displayed in January 2020.
