Yes it’s that time again, so unpack your elf outfits, dust off your wallets and practice your carols.
The Northcote Road Christmas lights switch on will take place on Friday 28th November at 6pm. Once again, Belleville & Honeywell choirs will be singing carols down Northcote Road from 5.30, culminating at Bennerley Road for a community sing song. Due to the overspill onto the Northcote Road last year we will be temporarily closing Bennerley Road from Northcote Road to Webbs Road for a couple of hours to create a focal point for all things festive (Christmas jumpers are an absolute must). The Battersea Arts Centre will be putting on a one off mini performance of Antarctica, we have all new lights to festoon Northcote Road and Santa will be back at his Grotto in Hamptons from 4pm – 7pm.
Once again, the local businesses have put their hands in their pockets and sponsored a hundred Christmas trees along the street. These will be placed outside participating businesses so be sure to pop in and say thank you. On the same theme, many of the shops will be staying open late and having special discounts & events to help you make the most of a fun Friday night out.
On Saturday the Hamptons elves have been slaving away booking a whopping seventy stalls from the summer fete to trade for the day. We don’t close the street for the winter market but there really is a huge range of traders to suit every pocket. They will be there from 10am – 5pm so do come along and help everyone get into the Christmas spirit.
Please keep your eye on nappyvalleynet over the next couple of weeks as we’ll be regularly posting what’s happening and who’s doing what on the night of the lights.
