The Water Poet Christmas Fair in Spitalfields

Event preview

THIS year, The Water Poet Christmas Fair in Spitalfields will take place on Saturday, December 1, 2012.

Visitors can expect to Sing-along-a-Christmas tune with the unmissable Brockley Ukelele Group while enjoying some superb limited edition festive ales from local brewers, including London Fields with their Black Frost Stout (6%) and Truman’s Emperor Penguin (4.5%).

The most amazing home-baked Christmas goodies from Galeta can be found in the glorious garden Barn, while award-winning Bray’s Cottage bring along the most tempting selection of seasonally inspired pies. There will also be a selection of local jams and honey.

It will be getting all Nordic on the decking as fondue, schnapps and traditional sharing boards (reindeer, venison, gravlax) are served alongside the spiciest mulled wine and cider, all under cover of the twinkliest of Christmas lights.

The Underground Picturehouse will screen all-day seasonal favourites downstairs, while Candy Pout bring a touch of glamour to their festive pampering boudoir, making visitors the star of their very own postcard set or Christmas greetings cards – for as little as £10.

There will be prizes for the best/worst festive jumper, so visitors can bring along their jazziest knits as local independent gift store In Spitalfields have a £50 voucher to give away!

A theatrical wild boar spit roast, wood fired chestnuts plus books and gift stalls of every kind will also be on offer – giving visitors even more reason to visit.

Admission: Free.

Time: Midday until 7pm.
