New lights are coming to North End Road and Lillie Road – and they’re not just for Christmas.

On Wednesday 1 December, Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s Mayor, Cllr PJ Murphy, will switch on new Christmas light displays in Fulham’s shopping streets.

Running from Jerdan Place to Lillie Road, the new LED lights will continue set the tone even when the holidays have come to a close.

The colour-changing wraparound lights are going to stay up throughout December and beyond, allowing them to cast their glow on local shoppers.

In 2019, the interactive light display lit up Canary Wharf as part of its annual Winter Lights Festival. Now, the 'ocean of light’ has come to Jerdan Place to illuminate Fulham’s town centre just in time for the holidays.

The illuminated string curtains are made up of 24,000 colour-shifting lights. Residents can simply pop by Jerdan Place to fully immerse themselves in the 12-minute light show.

“Our residents want to see Fulham’s high streets flourish, and so do we,” says Cllr Murphy.

“These new light installations are only one of the actions we’re taking to reinvent this historic high street as we work with residents and businesses to improve North End Road.”

The new lights are just part our efforts to make North End Road an even better place to shop, eat in and visit.

Christmas trees are set to be installed in Hammersmith Broadway and Jerdan Place in Fulham to jolly up our town centres.

A Christmas tree has also been installed at the corner of North End Road and Jerdan Place (right by Fulham’s weekly Farmer’s Market).

London’s first emissions-free market is going to paint Hammersmith Bridge approach in a whole new festive light.

Running from Sunday 28 November until Sunday 12 December, the market will stock handmade jewellery and hand-painted glass to arts and crafts designed by people who are homeless or living with mental health conditions.

All market stalls will be assembled and stocked with zero emissions, as the council will support featured traders with its e-cargo bike delivery service Parcels not Pollution. All shoppers are encouraged to travel sustainably as well.

Christmas carols will also be echoing from Jerdan Place in Fulham on 7 and 14 December at 7pm. Indulge in some mince pies and the sweet Christmas tunes from St John's Church choirs, including its children’s choir.
