Christmas Pop-ups at Leadenhall Market
The City of London’s Victorian market has announced a line-up of joyful pop-ups that are sure to make even the biggest of Scrooge’s in the mood for Christmas this year.
Coinciding with the Christmas lights switch-on on Thursday 16th November, the market will be welcoming special guests and events to its charming cobbled alleyways in the lead-up to the big day itself. Resident tenants La Vina, Windsor Flowers and The Lamb Tavern all have special offerings planned, and a collaboration with One Circle with a special Alpine Lodge. Leadenhall will also be hosting a pop-up store from Pollocks Toy Museum and a schedule of local choirs, courtesy of EC BID.
These events are all in addition to the popular guided walks that will take on a festive flavour with tales of a Leadenhall Christmas past and present – from its Roman roots to Dick Whittington, then onwards to Dickens’ Victorian festivities and the luckiest and pluckiest goose in the City. Led by a City of London guide and suitable for all ages, walks will take place every Wednesday, 6.30 - 8pm from 22 November until 13th December and must be booked in advance to avoid disappointment. (see website for booking details).
Throughout November and December, the market’s boutique shops, restaurants and bars will be stacked full of festive gifts, food and seasonal tipples – perfect for Christmas shopping and dining in one of London’s most beautiful locations. Please check individual stores for opening times.
Leadenhall Market is owned and managed by The City of London Corporation.
