Connaught Village Christmas celebrations

This Thursday 17th November from 3pm Connaught Village is celebrating the beginning of the Christmas season with an afternoon of complimentary sustainable craft workshops, live music performances, in-store promotions, and a chance to meet and pose for a photo with husky dogs.

The Tree of Love, Joy and Hope will have a new yuletide makeover with a well known message ‘All I want for Christmas is…’, which will illuminate the streets and become the ideal Insta moment for the family Christmas card.

Pupils from Connaught House School Choir will kick-start the afternoon of celebrations with an open-air performance of classic Christmas carols mixed with a few modern hits to get everyone into the festive spirit.

Throughout the afternoon, and into the early evening, there is a series of complimentary sustainable Christmas workshops including snow globe making and pine cone decorating. On Kendal Street, you are invited to meet and pose for a photo with Santa Paws, London’s very own husky claus. A Pawtrait illustrator will be drawing Pawtraits – a chance for you to have an illustration drawn with your dog or simply of yourself!

Pose under the magical tree lighting installation ‘All I want for Christmas is…’ for an Instagrammable moment and be sure to share it on Instagram tagging @connaughtvillage for a chance to win a special prize worth £500.
