Deptford Christmas Fair, 11th and 12th December

To celebrate the new walking and cycling route between New Cross and Deptford Town Centres, TfL and Design London are helping to fund a Christmas fair this weekend. North Lewisham Links is a Council-led project, intended to provide better connections between communities and local amenities.

Attractions at the fair on Saturday will include:

- a big wheel – get a free bird’s eye view of the improved route and the wider Deptford and New Cross landscape (10am-7pm, Margaret McMillan Park)
- rickshaws offering free rides between New Cross and Deptford market (9am-5pm)
- a 'smoothie bike' (11am-3pm, Douglas Way)
- a brass band and performances by Deptford Churches Together (12noon-1pm, Giffin Square)
- a kids’ Christmas tree decorations workshop by Other World Arts (1.30-3.30pm, Giffin Square)
- fun and games with Bureau Of Silly Ideas, Teatro Vivo and Madcap Coalition (11am-3pm, various locations)
- information stalls on local walking and cycling initiatives and the on-going regeneration of Deptford town centre (11am-3pm, Douglas Way)
- Christmas tree lights switch-on (3-3.30pm, Giffin Square)
- artisan market, Morris dancing, BBQ, mulled wine and music (11am-6pm, Tanners Hill).

Other activities will take place on Sunday around the Deptford Project railway carriage café on the high street.


Thanks to Tabitha for letting us know.

The new improved walk from new cross to deptford has made a huge difference to my stroll to the wavelengths pool. I wish it felt more safe in the evenings though...I'll be having a peek at the fair on Sat, tanks!

I'm thinking of doing a festive circuit of all of them - whilst drinking mulled wine from a thermos :)

Glad to see Deptford mentioned here. Long may it continue.

I really don't understand why Brockley and Ladywell Christmas Markets are on the same day never mind Deptford.

Is it really a clash? Surely it means you can visit all 3 on the same day in what is relatively the same area. I.e. spend a day in the locality?

What did people think of the Brockley Christmas fair?

Unavoidably out of London yesterday so missed both Brockley and Ladywell - there are pros and cons to having them on the same day. But will get along to Grove Park (see other thread) later.
