From festive trees to carol-singing choirs, spoken word and seasonal workshops,
‘Festive Fleet Street Quarter’ will see the streets buzzing with surprise Christmas activity
For the first time ever, the streets, alleys and squares in and around the historic Fleet Street Quarter will be magically transformed for Christmas. Launching on Thursday 24 November 2022, this pocket of the City will welcome workers and revellers to seek out an original taste of Christmas spirit in the heart of central London.
A ‘12 days of Christmas’ programme will see an exciting array of activities spread across four festive weeks, many of which will be a surprise for visitors and workers to discover, set amongst the area’s beautiful architecture. Festivities will kick-off on the opening night from 5pm with a magnificent 20-foot Christmas tree illuminating Old Mitre Court at Apex Hotel. Throughout the festive period visitors are invited to seek out a plethora of tree switch-ons which will pop up around secret locations across the Quarter, whilst enjoying a mince pie and a mulled wine.
Spreading festive cheer throughout this iconic part of the City of London, Fleet Street Quarter will launch Voices of the City - surprise and delight performances from London-based gospel choirs, carol singers, and spoken word artists, who will bring their original take on Christmas to this part of the city. Music will flood the Quarter with performances from the chart-topping Military Wives Choirs who will perform on their 10th anniversary, as well as the likes of London Community Gospel Choir, London City Voices, London Contemporary Voices.
