Enjoy an afternoon of feel-good fun. The festivities will kick off with a first-come, first-served free 11am showing of Peter Pan at the Everyman. Don’t worry if you miss out on a ticket, from midday there’s plenty more fun to be had, including live music, fairground attractions, street performers, and a treasure hunt. Local star guest Michael McIntyre will be switching on the Christmas Lights at 4.30pm, but the real VIP guest will be none other than Father Christmas himself. It promises to be an afternoon of festive fun for the whole family.
The Christmas Festival is being supported by a host of local businesses, with proceeds going to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Savills are kindly sponsoring the lights, aided in part by the NW3 Hampstead Business Group; Benham & Reeves the Christmas tree; Goldschmidt & Howland the stalls; TK International the fairground; Knight Frank the stage and Hamptons the petting zoo.
