Christmas is fast approaching and as the last-minute rush for presents commences and we start winding down from work, why not get yourself into the festive spirit with a range of activities in and around Elephant Park?
Festive fun at the Artworks
The Artworks is a great place to head to at any time of year to eat, drink or socialise, but this Christmas there’s even more going on.
Looking for a gift for a football mad relative then head down to the Six Yard Box on Thursday 21st to the Vintage Football Christmas Market. There will be stalls selling vintage jerseys, stickers, customer posters, books and much more. You can also enjoy a mulled cider or a wine as you look around.

Afterwards enjoy a refreshing drink in the Six Yard Box where there will also be free wrapping paper available.
Whilst at the Artworks why not treat yourself to some indulgence with treats from Cupcakes and Shhht (now fully vegan), which you can find in Unit 10? They also make cakes to order so if you are hosting a Christmas gathering you can wow your friends and family with an impressive array of specially made treats (advance ordering required).

Retro Christmas Pop-up
Escape the bustling streets and head to this tucked away mini Christmas market in the Lost River Elephant Bar. The Retro Christmas Market has everything from classic board games and old-school gaming machines to mulled wine, grilled bratwurst and pretzels!
Enjoy your Christmas carols? Nearby Southwark Cathedral has lots on offer in the lead up to Christmas – there’s a Christmas Sing-In and Carol Service on Thursday 24th, the London Concertante – Christmas Baroque by Candlelight on Saturday 23rd, and midnight mass on Christmas Eve.
