Christmas in Putney
Christmas Festivities in 2019
This year, we hosted two spectaular festive events in Putney starting with our annual Christmas Light Switch-On Party. We were joined by Mr and Mrs Whitehall (parents of Jack Whitehall and Putney residents) who turned on our Christmas lights in front of a spectacular crowd. We got into the Christmas spirit by listening to lots of wonderful local school choirs and performance groups on the stage, expertly compèred by Riverside Radio.
Putney also held the Upper Richmond Road Christmas Fayre – new to Putney this year, it was a lovely community event. Local residents came out to support the businesses and join in the festive fun. With festive tunes from the brass band, mulled wine and mince pies; families were spoilt for choice with activities.
