On Saturday 4th December businesses are joining forces to bring festive cheer and Christmas treats to Putney.
This year we will be hosting our annual Outdoor Christmas Fayre on Upper Richmond Road, known for its independent businesses. It’s sure to be a wonderful day full of the spirit of Christmas! There will be stalls from more Putney’s local shops and eateries offering a great selection of presents, Christmas treats plus music, theatre & even a visit from Santa!
In 2019 Ma Goa and The Bakehouse approached the BID and wanted to bring a festive fun filled event to the West side of Upper Richmond Road, to celebrate the fantastic community stores it has to offer. Now in our third year, we’ve got more events and activities than ever before! Come and enjoy some Christmas cheer whilst shopping and experiencing all of the wonderful local shops along the way.
We’ll have plenty of festive food! Come enjoy a glass of mulled wine from Fox and Hounds; or some delicious food from Ma Goa; a rich hot chocolate at Artisan; or a super treat Bubble Waffle down at East Bubble Cafe.
You can look at gorgeous Christmas gifts from Adornments; cute Christmas decorations at Pitter Potter; a beauty gift set at Kleo Beauty (or a manicure treatment as a gift?); gifts for the cyclist fanatic at Velosport; or how about a gift voucher from Bodies Under Construction?
There will be free children’s shows of The Nutcracker by Storystock happening in The Platform at Putney Hotel. Details can be found via the link below, booking is advised however we will hold some tickets on the door for walk-ins. http://positivelyputney.co.uk/nutcracker-story-time/
Throughout the day there will be festive music provided by Putney and Wimbledon’s brass band, and children will also be given the chance to write letters to Father Christmas. You can also take part in our special Nutcracker trail to find all the hidden Nutcrackers, with treats at The Bakehouse for those who discover all 8 on the day!
