With frost covered rooftops, twinkling lights over the Elizabeth Street skyline and one month left until Christmas, the elves at Wellbelove Quested thought you deserved to know the fun festive events happening throughout December in Belgravia.
Christmas kicks off on 3rd December at St Peter’s Church in Eaton Square with a Christmas concert in aid of The Cadogan Tate Kids for Kids charity, which works to help the forgotten children and their families in Darfur, Sudan. Throughout the evening Eamonn Holmes’ Celebrity Choir, the choir of Queen’s Gate School and The Thames Fanfare Brass will perform carols by candlelight and along with mulled wine and mince pies, there will be celebrity readings. Tickets are £25 for adults and a minimum donation of £15 for children that can be purchased at https://mydonate.bt.com/events/kidsforkidschristmas2015. Doors open at 6:30pm for a 7pm start.
The weekly Pimlico Road Farmers Market in Orange Square brings with it lashings of Christmas Spirit on Saturday 5th December, with live music, entertainment, festive treats and one-of-a-kind stalls. The opening times will be extended so you have plenty of time to purchase those much-admired stocking fillers you’ve been lusting after.
As if that isn’t enough, Father Christmas will be making a flying visit to Elizabeth Street on Sunday 6th December. This year Santa has foregone his sleigh and will instead be greeting children in a black London cab complete with photo booth so you can capture the special moment. The Street will be transformed into a winter wonderland offering mince pies, mulled wine, brass band with choir and stalls selling wonderful Christmas gifts.
Should you be unable to make the Elizabeth Street festive bonanza, Santa’s Grotto in the Duke of York Square will be open every day (apart from Mondays) up until Wednesday 23rd December when Santa will be shutting up shop to commence his all-important Christmas Eve deliveries. Grotto visits can be booked at www.dukeofyorksquare.com.
And that’s not all. The Nomad Cinema in conjunction with The Grosvenor Film Festival are showing Christmas classics from 10th to 13th December. These include Elf, Love Actually and It’s a Wonderful Life in Eccleston Place Courtyard which will be transformed into a warm and cosy magical grotto with seating, blankets, mulled wine and food.
