From festive trees to carol-singing choirs, spoken word and seasonal workshops, ‘Festive Fleet Street Quarter’ will see the streets buzzing with surprise Christmas activity.
For the first time ever, the streets, alleys and squares in and around the Fleet Street Quarter will be magically transformed for Christmas. Launching on Thursday 24 November 2022, a ‘12 days of Christmas’ programme will see an exciting array of activities spread across four festive weeks, many of which will be a surprise for visitors to discover.
Festivities will kick-off on the opening night from 5pm with a magnificent 20-foot Christmas tree illuminating Apex Hotel. The first in a plethora of secret tree switch-ons across the Quarter.
Voices of the City will see surprise performances from London-based gospel choirs, carol singers, and spoken word artists. Music will flood the Quarter with music from the chart-topping Military Wives Choirs who will perform on their 10th anniversary, as well as the likes of London Community Gospel Choir, London City Voices, London Contemporary Voices.
On 7 December, award-winning London poet, filmmaker and social media sensation Tomfoolery will deliver a unique performance as New Street Square’s tree is switched on. Tom will present a newly curated poem exploring the magic of Christmas in Fleet Street Quarter.
December will also see the launch of the Quarter’s first ever makers market, FIND IT @ Fleet Street Quarter, running every Thursday from 1 December until 15 December, 11.30-7pm in New Street Square, with traders provided by the Crafty Fox Market. Market-goers will be able to snap up gifts and stocking fillers from independent artists and makers offering a range of products.
Other activities include a free lunchtime wreath-making and bauble-making classes for the local business community. The City of London Distillery will also be holding a Christmas gin-making workshop on 14 December for those that fancy a seasonal tipple.
