More London Christmas Market
THIS year, the More London Christmas Market will take place from December 11 to December 15, 2013.
More London has teamed up with Shepherds Markets to bring a distinct local start-up feel to this year’s event featuring around 25 mainly local businesses including fashion, gifts, food and much, more. And – although not originally from London – Santa Claus and his reindeer will be dropping in for a day visit too!
Christmas is a vital time for those in retail and particularly for small business owners and start-ups. So this year’s Christmas Market has been designed to support and nurture London and in particular many south east London businesses, including a number of award-winning Startisans – start up companies specialising in artisan foods.
Visitors will be able to find unique and unusual gifts and enjoy foods from around the world. For example:
Christmas gifts – fashion accessories, handmade crafts and gifts including pottery, toys, pashminas and much more.
Food glorious food! – hot food from around the world and packaged food (perfect presents for foodies) including cheeses, chocolates, chutneys and from the Startisan businesses.
To add to the festive spirit, More London is busy organising a programme of entertainment including a one-off visit from Santa Claus complete with reindeer, plus local choirs to keep you singing throughout the five days – details will be announced nearer the time. Visit www.morelondon.com/.
The setting for the market is More London Riverside with views of Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.
Time: 11am to 6pm.
