Covent Garden’s Weekend of Celebration

This weekend there’s going to be a huge birthday party in Covent Garden as the area is marking a double celebration: the Market Building’s 180th anniversary and 30 years since it became one of London’s premiere shopping hot-spots.

A giant birthday cake will be unveiled at lunchtime on Friday and will be big enough to feed 2,000 hungry visitors.  Jump to the front of the queue by retweeting Covent Garden on Twitter

The life-sized Piazza party games will be going on throughout the weekend: Games like the classic market trader “basket race” and a “human fruit machine”.

There’ll also be a fantastic line-up of interactive workshops and the area’s favourite street performers will put on an evening cabaret.

It’s sure to be a wonderful weekend of celebration, so don’t miss out!
