Woolwich Christmas market to begin on 14th December

A Christmas market is set to begin this coming Monday 14th December in Woolwich town centre.

Events include:

  • Santa’s Photo Booth
  • Hook-a-Santa
  • ART Caricature and Cake Stall
  • Roast Chestnuts, candyfloss and non-alcoholic mulled wine
  • Children’s rides

A light and music event is also being held tonight and tomorrow (10th and 11th December) in Woolwich from Collectif Coin.

The event will run from 5pm to 9pm.

Opening hours for the market are:

  • Monday to Wednesday: 9am to 4pm
  • Thursday: 9am to 1pm
  • Friday and Saturday: 9am to 4.30pm
  • Sunday 19th December only: 9am to 3pm

It’s a shame not one late night opening is planned for people at work.

However a separate event will be held on General Gordon Square on Friday 19th December.

    Just read that greenwich had a 68% increase on last week’s covid figures, and omicron is doubling every 2 days. Guess this market is an initiative to keep the top spot.

    Yes, best avoided. The Germans were much smarter on this one: https://www.independent.co.uk/travel/news-and-advice/german-states-cancel-christmas-markets-2021-b1962104.html?amp

    Obviously, it’s to support the local economy; as with the “economy over lives” approach of UK Govt.

    Whatever your view on that, you can guarantee it’ll be an incredible rip-off. A chance to enjoy an “authentic recreation” of Weimar Republic hyperinflation on foodstuffs maybe.

    ‘A chance to enjoy an “authentic recreation” of Weimar Republic hyperinflation …’. 😂 My wheelbarrow is otherwise employed.

    It came from the German derivation of Christmas markets, and how London version may soon need to implement a ‘payment by instalments’ scheme on oversized pretzels.

    It’s good you have a wheel barrow; it’ll come in handy considering where the current situation is heading …
