This year, Avery Hill Park will be transformed into an enchanted winter wonderland for Royal Greenwich residents to enjoy. As part of the stunning display of lights, the historic Winter Garden will be illuminated and visitors can also explore the Christmas market, a fun fair and enjoy pop up performances from local school and community choirs.
Due to the larger space available, visitors won’t need a ticket to enter this year’s event.
As in previous years, on Sunday 3rd December there will be a quiet hour, for children and adults with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and sensory sensitivities. During the quiet hour, there will be reduced noise, no flashing lights, a reduced capacity on site and sensory appropriate entertainment.
The Christmas spirit will also take over the town centres with markets and light switch on events in Eltham, Greenwich and Woolwich, and a market in Thamesmead. Expect local craft, gift and food stalls, children’s arts and crafts and festive entertainment.
Councillor Adel Khaireh, Cabinet Member for Equality, Culture and Communities, said: “We know the rising cost of living is an ongoing challenge for everyone, so delivering free, high-quality events for our communities to enjoy is more important than ever.”
“Last year’s Sparkle in the Park was a huge success. We want to make sure even more residents can enjoy the magic this time around, so you won’t require a ticket to enter. Come along with your friends, family and neighbours for a fantastic, free event on your doorstep.”
“The festive season is a great time for our residents to come together as a community and celebrate. Enjoy free arts and crafts and support local traders at our Christmas markets in Eltham, Greenwich, Thamesmead and Woolwich and we'll need your help to light up some of our town centres, too!”
