Covent Garden at ChristmasWith only 7 days to go, A Very Merry Christmas at Covent Garden is in full festive swing! 

The elves are hard at work in the grotto, Santa is logging all the children’s Christmas wishes, and even the reindeer,  Jingle and Bell,  have been keeping out of mischief long enough to entertain the crowds on the Piazza!

There are still a host of exciting activities in store at Covent Garden in the run-up to Christmas for both adults and children.

Grown-ups can stock up on festive fare at the Covent Garden Real Food Market.

Children can meet Santa and his elves at the grotto or learn how to make their own unique Christmas costume at workshops on Sunday 20 December between 1pm and 3pm. 

There will also be a  free children’s theatre performance from the enchanting Peut-ȇtre Theatre Company taking place between 11am and 1pm on Saturday.
