And today’s ThisWeek-tipped, LDN-based events are…
Christmas Fairs and Markets | various locations | 29 Nov
It’s nearly, nearly, nearly December, and so of course I have begun trawling in earnest for Christmas themed events and productions (no matter how dire) of ‘A Christmas Carol’. I found three things that are only on today, so you must partake of them today. Yes, today. There’s the Hampstead Christmas Festival, there’s the Christmas Designer Market at the Museum of Childhood, and there’s Primrose Hill Christmas Fair. That’s just to start you off. Bet you can find more if you go googling a bit. Info from all the links I already linked to.
Christmas at Kew | Kew Gardens | 25 Nov-2 Jan (pictured)
Yes, yes, I know I have already recommended a similar event, but I love this kind of thing so much that I just can’t help myself. And this one carries on into January, and the other one didn’t, so, if you can’t go today, you’ve got the whole of the Christmas holidays to fit this in. Why would you want to miss the chance to wander around in the dark looking at gorgeously lit trees and illuminated fountains? And there are rides for the little ones, and everything. See this page here for all the info you need.
Desperate Measures | Jermyn Street | 24 Nov-20 Dec
Okay, so here’s one for those of you who still don’t want to think about Christmas, or indeed, don’t actually celebrate Christmas. This is a new musical, based on Shakespeare’s ‘Measure For Measure’, but set in 1960s London, with presumably the style of music to match. Sounds interesting, no? More info about the show and tickets from right about here.
