Fitzrovia Lights up this Christmas season with a number of festive events.
Culminating in a late night shopping experience the @FitzroviaFestive Pop-Up outside the Building Centre on Thursday 27 November 12 – 8pm, is where you need to be. Enjoy street food from a whole host of some of the best local restaurants. From Vietnamese bowl food from Bang Bang, juicy burgers from our friends at BoBo Social and the Wild Game Co., schnitzel courtesy of Boopshi’s and the ever popular Bubbledogs hotdogs there is something to suit all tastes. You will also be able to wash it down with c and for a unique Christmas gift visit browse The Curwen Gallery’s stall whilst sipping port from Soho Wines , festive mochas from West Elm or a Christmas cocktail or two. The whole event will be topped off with the smooth sounds of our Christmas crooner amidst the twinkly lights. And don’t forget to buy your panettone from the Obika stall, its come direct from Italy so is the real deal!
From 5pm our dress-up Taxi Photo Booth will drive in, so that your team can jump in and create your own Christmas snaps.
And Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit from Santa. He will be joining us to host a tombola packed with fabulous prizes including shopping gift vouchers and meals at the best eateries in Charlotte Street. Proceeds from the tombola will be donated to the Children’s Ward of UCL hospital, who will be hosting a stall for their Christmas present scheme, we’d like to encourage people to stop by and drop off a gift for children throughout the event.
It will all kick start on Thursday 13 November, when the Christmas Lights on Tottenham Court Road, Charlotte Street, Goodge Street and Maple Street will be switched on with the help of the children from the children’s ward at UCL hospital. Arrive from 4:45pm to hear some Christmas songs and to secure your spot for Switch-on at 5pm.
Then every Thursday afterwards the BID will be hosting charity carol singing around the Christmas Tree in Whitfield Gardens. Let the choirs entertain you whilst taking advantage of Fitzrovia’s late night shopping on the run up to Christmas.
