Choirs of angels, or maybe schoolchildren will sing their hearts out while Santa offers presents from his bottomless sack, in a grotto that’s a sight to behold. With his elves on hand to organise and entertain there’ll be a full day of festive fun to enjoy plus delicious hot food to warm the cockles of your collective heart.

As the 3rd of December is East End Independents Day and Small Business Saturday you can tick off your Christmas shopping at our special market filled with designer-made and vintage goodies and in Roman Road’s fantastic independent shops. Afterwards reward your success with a glass of mulled wine or a mug of hot chocolate with some super-squishy marshmallows.

The East End Trades Guild is arranging a walking tour entitled “Women of the East End” to be hosted by Alternative London. This will be followed by a Women’s Museum talk at Roman Road Pie and Mash stalwart G.Kelly’s. There’ll be art by local children on show at Butler and Stag and artist Stathi Papadopoulis will be creating a live masterpiece in Snap’s window.

The Roman Road Christmas Fair is free to attend and booking is not required.

The Roman Road Christmas Fair is organised and produced by Roman Road Trust CIC.
