THE LITTLE CHRISTMAS TREE 
From Saturday
One to consider before you buy your tree, this is the story of  the little boy who wants to buy the wonky Christmas tree which everyone has left behind. This seems a great time of year to head to the only floating theatre for kids in town.

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS – FREE!

If you fancy a wander, London goes bling at Christmas time. The windows at Fortnum & Mason, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Harrods are definitely worth a look, as are the lights across the major shopping streets and pedestrian areas like Burlington Arcade and Carnaby Street. We defy you not to feel Christmassy after that little lot!

 

If this has whet your appetite, we’ve more things to do in December here.
