Hello again beautiful people! How is your Christmas preparation going? It’s only 7 days until the actual day, which will probably be spent in pyjamas sipping prosecco, at least for me :). Anyways today’s post is all about affordable Christmas events to attend.
Oh if you haven’t done your Christmas shopping yet, here are blog posts with gift ideas. For the travel fiends, skincare junkies and if they prefer experiences.
Affordable Christmas Events to Attend
One of the exciting things about the Christmas season is the decorations that get put every year. You have a multitude of places across London to choose from. If you’re in London take a stroll along Carnaby Street, Oxford Street and New Bond Street for their display. Go to Crystal Palace for Lightopia which creates an illuminated winter wonderland, entry starts from 5pm until 8.30pm. Tickets start from £20 for adults but sign up for their newsletter you get 5% off the ticket. There’s also Christmas at Kew Gardens but if you can’t get tickets for it, head to Hamstead Heath for Christmas at Kenwood.
Want to have a magical movie night? Check out the Backyard Cinema in Wandsworth or East London. Think Elf, The Muppets Christmas Carole and all your favourite Christmas movies. There’s also live singing at the East London location, food and drink in beautifully decorated spaces. Tickets are from £20 and they go pretty quickly so book as soon as you can. Click here to find out more.
If you can’t get a ticket for Backyard Cinema, check out Luna Winter Cinema at Battersea Arts Centre and their movie options.
Carols by Candle Light
When I lived in Trinidad and Tobago, we used to go to carols by candle light in an open park and it was so beautiful. Listening to a live choir and band under the stars with the flickering of candles. So here are some options if that’s up your alley. The Painted Hall in Greenwich are having their own Christmas carol until the 23rd December with songs and music from Scrooge. Book here
This isn’t as affordable as the others but, it’s 1 night only at Butcher’s Hall on Monday 20th December where they’ll be putting on a gospel choir. If classical music is more your thing, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons by Candle light will be for you. Tickets are £25 and the next show will be on the 19th December. Get to booking!
There are always affordable Christmas events to attend but I wanted to focus on things you can do solo or with friends and family. Also, we’ve probably all done winter wonderland in Hyde Park and need something different. What Christmassy things will you be doing for the season? Let me know in the comments below.
Thank you for reading and until next time, be well! x
