The illumination of Syon park is short but sweet – as in it’s only open for a couple of weekends a year and this is the last weekend – and it’s lovely – you really should go – the walk is just over 1 mile and then there is a lovely light show to round off. There’s a café and BBQ going to help you keep warm.
£7 entrance fee!
There is a free puppet making workshop for young people at the Rose Lipman Building which is FREE!!
If you fancy a bit of Music then head to the Spitalfields Music Winter Festival. There is music on Friday and Sunday and a circus on the Saturday and the Christmas lights will be switched on.
And to keep with the Christmas theme there will be a Christmas Pudding Race in Covent Garden on Saturday from 11am
If all this wasn’t sweet enough Brixton’s Chocolate Museum will host a very chocolate themed Christmas Fair from 11 – 7 and it is FREE!
If you’ve had enough of Christmas (weirdo) then the Hackney Picturehouse will be showing Annie Hall to celebrate Woody Allen – this starts at 6pm and is £20, there’s a live show going on with other people there too so it’s not just the film!
And if you want it all then Ruislip Lido will be offering fireworks, a funfair and refreshments – it kicks off a 3 (I sure hope the fireworks don’t though) and it’s FREE!
Bust Magazine will be at the York Hall in Bethnal Green and there will be over 65 stalls of handmade goodies – Sunday 12 – 5pm for the cost of just £2 admittance
