Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City will be welcoming visitors to a variety of Christmas activities for the whole family, including Westfield London’s first-ever Christmas market, the return of its magical Christmas Grotto and an array of exclusive offers and Christmas services.

Westfield London will be hosting its inaugural outdoor Christmas Market from 20 November to 24 December on Westfield Square, where visitors will enjoy an array of seasonally inspired food, beverages and Christmas gifts.

The Market is created in partnership with KMC Squared, who have been bringing Christmas events to London and beyond since 2015. British, independent retailers will be celebrated this festive season with stalls hosted by various gift, food and drink brands including Solid Cologne UK, Wax + Wick, Foxdenton Estate, Ask Mummy and Daddy, and The Wonderland Collective who will host an exclusive pop-up celebrating primarily British craftsmanship.

The Christmas Market will also host one of the largest Christmas trees in the city, and a covered bar area will feature music and seasonal drinks to bring festive cheer to all visitors and shoppers.

Santa’s Snowflake Grotto will return to Westfield London from 21 November to 24 December this year with a traditional Nordic theme. Visitors will be taken through a secret realm of snowflakes into the grotto’s winter wonderland with Santa’s helpers, where visitors will have the chance to create their own unique individual snowflakes.

Westfield Stratford City will be hosting the annual Christmas Festival on 16 November, a day of festive-inspired family fun with live entertainment and free Christmas treats. Visitors can watch the traditional parade that makes its way through the centre, with families encouraged to take part.

The holiday season will be supported by Westfield’s luxury range of in-centre services including hands-free shopping, gift wrapping, concierge and valet parking. The hands-free shopping service takes the stress away from carrying heavy bags, storing them safely for shoppers to fully enjoy their Christmas experience. Guest Services will also be on hand to advise and consult visitors on all their shopping needs.

Myf Ryan, CMO Europe and Group Director of Brand and Strategic Marketing for Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield comments, “Westfield London and Westfield Stratford City have become Christmas destinations in their own right in the UK capital. This Christmas we will host unique festive experiences to friends and families, bringing the magic of Christmas to life. Visitors can enjoy the Christmas market at Westfield London or Christmas Festival at Westfield Stratford City, whilst both locations will provide luxury in-centre services to make Christmas shopping easier.”

KMC Squared’s Director Kate McKenzie said, “We’re delighted to be running the first-ever Westfield Christmas Market and bringing the Wonderland Collective to the heart of that. There’s such an incredible range of shopping already on offer at the centre, and to be able to showcase smaller makers and artisans to such a wide audience is very exciting. It’s the perfect place to dispel any gifting grief and find the perfect for presents for your loved ones.”
