that time of year again when the whole of London seems to turn into Santa’s grotto with festive events popping up on every street. More London on the South Bank are getting in on the act with a Christmas Market and ice rink and best of all, it’s free of charge!

Between Friday 9th and Sunday 11th The Scoop at More London will host over 30 traders selling every type of Christmas gift you can imagine, from jewellery, fashion and leather goods to Festive food, drink and crafts.

Between 10am and 6pm there will also be free ice skating, sponsored by Tesco. This is guaranteed to be very popular, so get there early if you want to show off your skating skills! The generosity of Tesco doesn’t end there – they will also be giving away free mince pies, mulled wine and hot chocolate in their nearby Tooley Street store. All you have to do to claim your free refreshments is to pick up a cup from the ice rink and head to the store.

And to complete the atmosphere, the event will web soundtracked by brass bands and string quartets playing your favourite Christmas songs and carols. So if you fancy getting in the festive spirit with views of Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, St Paul’s and the Gherkin, get your skates on!

Fri 9th Dec – Sun 11th Dec, 10am – 6pm
