Tags: Wimbledon This Christmas
One of the benefits of living in Wimbledon there is always so much going on the lead up to Christmas, and this year it doesn’t look as though it’s going to disappoint with one of this year's events being the Christmas market which will run from the 26th November until the 20th December. There will be Christmas lights, bustling stalls, exciting gifts and mulled wine and music.
Thousands of people descend Wimbledon each year in order to enjoy the ‘Walking in a Wimbledon Wonderland’ which will be held on Sunday 27th November this year. There will be festive music played by brass bands, accompanied by choir singing, dancing penguins and roller skating Christmas puddings. Organisers state that they are “Filling up the day with everything that makes Christmas special. There will also be the opportunity for those young and old to enjoy the magical carousel and snow dome photobooth. You will also be able to stock up on Christmas presents from local and regional traders selling everything from homewares to Christmas bakes and special stocking fillers. The event will take place at The Cresent in Wimbledon Town Centre, from 12-6pm. There will also be a free fireworks display courtesy of Centre Court Shopping Centre at 5.30pm.
If you are looking for some family entertainment in the lead up to Christmas then why not book to see ‘Babe VIP Performance’ at the Polka Theatre, suitable for 5-11 year olds on Saturday 6 December at 3pm. The theatre play is an adaption of the classic children’s story about a pig that discovers a talent for sheep herding.
