Car-free Christmas Shopping Day Saturday 2 December

The local community is being invited to get involved in the first-ever Hammersmith Christmas Market on Saturday 2 December, 10am to 5.30pm.

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.

Motorists are being alerted that King Street will be closed between the gyratory and Leamore Street during the Christmas Festival on 2 December. Residents and business owners will still have access to Leamore Street.

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.”

Furthermore, there will be a special event for children to take part in…

Have you heard about Jack and the Beanstalk coming to Hammersmith ?

Would you like to win a family ticket to see the amazing show at the famous Lyric Hammersmith theatre?

Here’s what you need to do!

Jack had to plant some magic beans for the bean stalk to grow. On Saturday 2nd December we will have a handful of delicious fruity jelly beans* for each child* to find in the bean hunt.

There will be 12 clues to take them along through the town and lead them to the beans. These clues will be easy enough, but an adult must accompany the child to safeguard the crossing of streets.

Each child that finds the beans will have the opportunity to win the family ticket to see the terrific show.

 

*Only primary school children may participate.

* Every bean is made with 100% natural flavours! They’re all: Gluten free, gelatine free, nut free, free from artificial colours, suitable for vegetarians, suitable for Coeliacs.
