Christmas events 2019

Magical Christmas celebrations took over Greenwich, Eltham, Thamesmead and Woolwich as the 2019 Royal Borough of Greenwich festivities sprinkled the town centres with Christmas cheer.

Thousands of people turned out to the extravaganzas to see the Christmas lights switched on. Activities included a giant snow globe, arts and craft workshops, pedal-powered sleigh rides, lantern parades, a visit from Father Christmas and much more. Live music stages at all of the events featured  local choirs, artists and bands.
