Enjoy the festive vibes at our traffic-free Hammersmith Christmas Market on Saturday 7 December. It’s open from 10am to 5pm.

Bustling King Street will be full of more than 100 stalls filled with seasonal food, drink and gifts at the annual pop-up market alongside a global food quarter with an outdoor seating area.

Over in Lyric Square, there will be a stage for live music and dance performances.

Plus, there’s a jam-packed line-up of street entertainment across the car-free market which includes a skating snow man, stilt-walking ice people, two super-sized gift-wrapped walking presents and the one and only Santa, to name just a few.

“Start your Christmas shopping at our Hammersmith Christmas market,” said Cllr Andrew Jones, H&F Cabinet Member for the Economy and the Arts.

“This market is part of our efforts to revitalise Hammersmith town centre as we make H&F the best place to live, work and play in Europe.”

Music to your ears

Bring the little ones down to Santa’s Grotto in Kings Mall so they can share their Christmas requests. It’s free and opens at noon.

Over on the stage in Lyric Square, the line-up of acts includes the ZHL string quartet, indie singer George Charlton, Polish carols, as well as local residents Solana and Gabriel, a brother and sister singer-songwriter double act who have previously played at high profile events like Children in Need.

There will be even more music to enjoy throughout the day, with three additional busking pods across the market.

If you’re not in the mood to dance the day away and shopping is more your thing, then come and browse more than 100 stalls selling everything from art to jewellery, to accessories and clothes.

Made in H&F

While you are in King Street, please visit the Made in H&F pop-up store in the Kings Mall shopping centre?

The pop-up store is selling creations from local designers and artists.

H&F Council has teamed up with Hammersmith Bid and Kings Mall shopping centre to provide the affordable retail space for more than twenty local small business owners.

The Made in H&F shop is located close to Wilko.
