It’s Unavoidable…

Posted by Boundary Community Launderette on 25/11/2010

It seems that, inevitably, Christmas has now taken over London. Our weekly search for events or places to recommend has had to bow to that, and this week we’re highlighting some things you might want to see or take part in. For those of us who, for whatever reason, aren’t too keen on Christmas, we’ll endeavour in seeking out other events in forthcoming weeks!

The Geffrye Museum has opened its festive exhibition ‘Christmas Past’ this week, with all of the themed rooms being decorated in the Christmas style of their period. http://www.geffrye-museum.org.uk/whatson/special/

The Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood has activities for children and adults most days of the week. One highlight this weekend is the Finnish circus performer Ilona Jäntti who will be performing her amazing aerial dances on Saturday 26th & Sunday 27th November between midday & 3pm. Check out the museum’s website for full details of their events and activities: http://www.vam.ac.uk/moc/index.html

The Hackney Empire always put on one of the best pantomimes in London, and this year Jack and the Beanstalk promises to continue that tradition: http://www.hackneyempire.co.uk/1767/shows/jack-and-the-beanstalk.html

There’s a ‘Cologne Christmas Market’ on the South Bank, between the London Eye and the Royal Festival Hall, open every day until 23rd December. This is a traditional German-style winter market with over 60 craft stalls and different events each weekend. http://www.southbanklondon.com/attraction/rfh/

 

If you want more ideas for things to do, check out our links to local places of interest. We’re in the middle of one of the most vibrant areas of London, so there’s bound to be something to interest you!

 

Have you any thoughts on which charitable organisation should get a share of the bookstall money? If you have please let us know via the ‘Time to Donate’ page by Friday 3rd December:   https://boundarylaunderette.wordpress.com/2010/11/22/time-to-donate/
