North End Road to Host Two Traffic Free Christmas Markets
And residents are invited to apply to run their own stalls
North End Road is offering residents two opportunities to get into the Christmas spirit and shop in a traffic free space with Christmas markets taking place on November 28 and 12 December 12.
On both occasions, North End Road will be pedestrianised and packed with stalls on both sides selling Christmas presents and great food, with entertainment for the whole family.
The Christmas markets are part of Hammersmith & Fulham council’s drive, together with residents in the North End Road Action Group, to revive this major high street.
" Residents have told us how much they enjoyed the range of stalls and the atmosphere at our previous traffic-free markets in North End Road so we’re doing it twice for Christmas," says Cllr Andrew Jones, the council’s cabinet member for economic development and regeneration.
" No buses, lorries or cars – just fantastic stalls with loads of Christmas presents, lots to eat and festive entertainment."
As well as the ever-popular fruit and veg stalls selling top quality produce at below-supermarket prices, there will be more than 100 new stalls offering festive presents, hand-made decorations and crafts, street food, delicious cakes, mulled wine and much more.
The market on November 28 will offer live music, a children’s funfair, Christmas carols and unusual entertainment, including the sparkling Glitter Belles (stiltwalkers like giant-sized baubles), balloon-modelling elves and the athletic Grace Billings with her light-up hula hoops.
