2/10. Lights on and lantern parade

Joy lantern in greenwich market lantern parade

Why go? What better way to kick off the festivities than by witnessing a procession of  festive lanterns and to see the Market's twinkling Christmas lights switched on.

Activities: On 25 November, the local school children will partake in their yearly lantern procession. The parade will start at the Old Royal Naval College at 4:00pm and finish at the market at 4:30pm. The procession carries lanterns both large and small that will give your evening a festive glow.  If you don't want the fun to stop, you'll be able to take the little ones to visit Father Christmas in his grotto or even watch the Christmas lights be switched on. There will be Christmas carols, beverages, mince pies which were kindly provided by Waitrose - and even the shops will be open until 7:00pm.

Price: Viewing of the lantern procession is free
