With Christmas festivities now in full swing we wanted to share with you a few of our favourite Christmas pop ups in London this year.
1. Backyard Cinema- Winter Night Garden
You can experience real life Narnia at the Backyard Cinema this Christmas. Wrap up in your biggest (faux fur) coat and walk through the magical wardrobe of Narnia down a secret tunnel of trees where you are led to an enchanting auditorium, where you can get all cosy with a mulled wine and discover the most Christmassy cinema experience. Experience the Christmas classics such as Elf, Home Alone, The Holiday and Love Actually in the Winter Night Garden. Book online at https://www.backyardcinema.co.uk/winter-night-garden/
2. Queen of Hoxton’s Moroccan Medina- Shoreditch
Head to the Queen of Hoxton’s Moroccan Medina for a different take on Christmas. Inspired by the Majorelle Gardens in Marrakech the beautifully decorated roof top will get you in the Christmas spirit. Themed as ‘winter in the desert’ you can indulge in festive treats whilst sitting in the heated wigwam. The air is filled with Moroccan spices and the roof tip is lit with fairy lights and Chiminea fireplaces. The rooftop is open from 4pm and it’s staying until March 2018, giving you plenty of time to visit!
3. Skylight- Tobacco Dock’s
We love ice skating- it’s by far the most Christmassy activity you can do. However, Tobacco Dock’s has reinvented ice skating. Roof-top ice skating is by far our new favourite activity. Glide around whilst taking in the stunning views of the city. If you fancy something more adventurous you could even give the ice-hockey a go! However, we were more content with tucking into a cheese fondue with mulled wine under the fairy lights.
4. Winterville- Clapham
Home to the Backyard Cinema’s Winter Night Garden, you can also expect street food, UV powered crazy golf, a fairground and Christmas markets. As well as this later on in the evening you will see DJ sets from Norman JAY MBE, Cirque du Cabaret and many more. This pop up is the perfect mix of indoor and outdoor Christmas attractions. With street food and bars you have all you need to spend the whole day or evening at Winterville.
