With December just around the corner, now is the time to get excited about Christmas!
Let the good tidings roll with this lovely mix of school and community events for kids and parents, all proudly sponsored by our community partners, Marsh & Parsons.
You might see them serving mulled wine, handing out mince pies, manning Santa’s grotto or just generally lending a helping hand, so do say hello!
Where: Tufnell Park
Eleanor Palmer Primary School Christmas Fair is full to the brim with wintery fun!
Browse the festive stalls offering a variety of gift ideas, take part in the raffle and the chocolate tombola and visit Santa’s grotto, before warming up with a cup of mulled wine and a mince pie.
Where: Askew Road
We’d expect nothing less than a wonderful afternoon out at the Good Shepherd Primary School. Visit the craft stalls, buy your Christmas cards and enjoy the delicious food on offer at their annual Christmas Fair.
Don’t forget to collect your Marsh & Parsons gift bag where you can stash all your gifts!
Head on down to Balham’s renowned Telferscot Primary School and visit Santa’s Grotto at the Christmas Fair. There’s plenty more on offer after the kids have said hello to the man of the hour, from a face-painting station to a bouncy castle, and much more.
The top raffle prize is impressive too: lunch at The Dorchester with an exclusive kitchen tour, donated by Marsh & Parsons. Other prizes include a £120 Lamberts voucher, holiday camp and sports club vouchers and many other generous prices, also kindly donated by local businesses.
Where: Ravenscourt Park
John Betts Primary School Christmas Fair has enough going on to get even self-proclaimed Scrooges feeling Christmassy! Enjoy complimentary mulled wine and mince pies as you and the kids visit Santa’s Grotto, craft stalls and face painters before joining in with the carol singers.
The Barnes Christmas Festival is a festive-filled day for all! Hosted by the Barnes Community Association, the event begins at 11am at The Sun Inn, where attendees can shop for Christmas gifts before being serenaded by carol singers from St Osmund’s School at lunchtime (with a second performance at 5pm). The OSO Arts Centre also hosts a magical Christmas Market, teeming with fabulous Christmas gift ideas.
Along with other local businesses, Marsh & Parsons will be keeping their doors open later, warming up passing shoppers with mulled wine and mince pies, so pop in for your mid-shop pick-me-up!
The Macaulay C of E Primary School annual Christmas tree and wreath sale is a great opportunity to support the school whilst finding your perfect festive spruce, ensuring your home will be filled with that lovely smell of Christmas!
Where: Askew Road
Organised by the Hammersmith Community Gardens Association, the Askew Road Christmas Fair takes place on the lovely Starch Green, on the corner of Askew Road and Goldhawk Road. Head down with the kids to meet Santa in his grotto, try your hand at wreath-making and join in with the carol singers.
