Eat, drink and be merry at Camden Market this Christmas time!

Christmas is just peeking around the corner, ready to give out all its festive joys and merriment. The Yuletide spirit is almost here and Camden Market is set transform into a unique Christmas wonderland this November and December. Welcoming Santa’s Gingerbread Workshop & Grotto, snow flurries, seasonal music acts and a festival street food line up.

CHRISTMAS GROTTO | SANTA'S GINGERBREAD WORKSHOP

This year Camden Market will become a magical doorway to The North Pole with an activity themed Christmas Grotto experience. Visit its enchanted world and join the elves in their workshop making toys and preparing Santa’s favourite gingerbread with this magical, fun and interactive experience, not to be missed.

Little ones will need to roll up their sleeves and help the elves decorate a new batch of gingerbread ahead of Santa’s return, before meeting Father Christmas himself to fill the wish-o-meter with their Christmas wishes. The grotto has been imagined by Ministry of Fun, renowned for producing some of London’s greatest grottos.
