Yes folks it’s that time of year again when Wapping gathers on Wapping Green to enjoy the lighting of the Christmas Tree!
Before the whole switching on thing there is the Wapping Great Christmas Fair to enjoy between 11am and 5pm and entry is free.
And no we have no idea who is doing the switching so don’t bother asking. Maybe it will be Julia ‘Twinkle Toes’ Lopez (nee Dockerill) who organised the tree when she was our amazing councillor?
Update: Now we think we do know who the Surprise Guest Who Switches On The Christmas Tree Lights is – but we aren’t telling!
So best you turn up to find out!
New for 2019 you will be able to visit Father Christmas in his extra special grotto in Wapping Wonderland!
If final proof that Father Christmas is definitely real is not enough – and it should be to be honest – there are lots of activities to enjoy at the Fair including; Christmas gifts; Arts & Crafts; Face Painting; Fun, Games and Activities all day, Hot Drinks, Mulled Wine, Mince Pies, Cakes, Performances, Carol singing and Husseys Hot Dogs and Burgers will be on sale! Hurrah!
Please bring your own cup or insulated mug and receive 25p off the price of hot drinks as we are all being sustainable now.
The Wapping Great Christmas Fair is only possible through the generosity of sponsors Pollyanna, Tobacco Dock, Docklands Estates, Turks Head, Tower Hamlets Homes, Tower Hamlets Council and Canary Wharf Group. Many thanks and a hearty Yo Ho Ho! to all the sponsors.
