Wandsworth Town Christmas Festival 2023

Wandsworth Town Business Improvement District (BID) and Southside Shopping Centre are bringing Christmas cheer to the heart of South West London on Saturday 25 November with the much anticipated return of Wandsworth Town Christmas Festival.

10am – Makers Market

The day kicks off from 10am with a huge festive makers market at Ram Quarter from Design Led. The sustainable and boutique market will give shoppers the opportunity to bag amazing and unique gifts, including skin care, homeware, fashion, jewellery, artwork, and more.

Lee Wilson, the director of Design Led, said, “Expect gorgeous products you won’t find anywhere else!”

4:30pm – Christmas Light Switch-on

Over the road at Southside Wandsworth, Riverside Radio will be hosting a stage of live performances throughout the day, including music, dance and theatre. Little ones will get the chance to meet Father Christmas himself and there’ll be lots more family fun, including kids’ rides, photo opportunities and magic.

The big Christmas light switch-on will take place at the Riverside Radio stage on Southside’s piazza at 4:30pm.

We are thrilled to be able to host Wandsworth Town Christmas Festival again this year. It’s becoming a staple within the community and we’re always delighted by how much joy it brings people. We are proud to represent a business community that really has something for everyone, and we think the Christmas Festival is an amazing opportunity to show what Wandsworth Town is about.

Events in Southside Shopping Centre

Last year’s hugely popular Nutcracker Trail also returns to the shopping centre this Christmas. Track down those naughty nutcrackers and solve the Christmas clues to be in with a chance of winning some amazing prizes, including a Nintendo Switch console, a Gravity ‘Golden Ticket’ for you and two friends, and an amazing toy bundle from The Entertainer!

Southside’s Kindness Elves will also be dotted throughout the centre, encouraging us all to adopt random acts of kindness and be selfless in the season of giving.

There’s plenty of fun to be had for big kids as well, with amazing local venues like Gravity, Strike and Boom Battle Bar offering fantastic value on games, food and drinks.
