Putney Christmas Lights & market 2013
Opening for one or two (non-food and drink) market stalls for selling Christmas goods. Telephone: 020 8785 0374
This year’s Putney Christmas Lights and Market event is on Friday, 29 November 2013 in Church Square, Putney High Street (approximately 3pm to 7.45pm). It’s always a fun-filled event for children and adults.
Attractions include a huge Christmas tree, Carters Steam Fair entertainment, free lantern workshop and Christmas carols sung by local schools. Add a large Christmas market, a lantern procession of over 100 people through the town centre, hot food, mulled wine, lights switch-on ceremony, bouncy castle, carousel and live music and you have all the hallmarks of a great event!
Last year’s event was a big occasion and proved extremely popular with families, office-workers/commuters and visitors – so why not make a date to come along and have some fun with friends!Children love the rides, food, school choirs and family fun; while the live music, hot mulled wine, fine beers and hot food and entertainment keep the adults amused!
Wandsworth Council organise and support the event in conjunction with the Putney Partnership and Putney Commercial Forum. This includes the market, festive lights, entertainment and event promotion.
