Maryon Park
30 Woodland Terrace
London SE7 8EN

We are bringing the hugely successful Sparkle in the Park Christmas light trail back for a second year. Jolly on through an immersive light trail under twinkling trees and fantastical fire art installations with interactive experiences along the way. This year we have gone one step further - the event will see live music performances, shows for children and a Christmas disco to see the festivities off every night.

There will also be Christmas market stalls, delicious street food and a bar with an array of magical alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.
