Ladywell Christmas Market, December 13th

On Saturday, between 11am and 5pm, Ladywell will host its first Christmas Market, next to the station.

The rival / complementary attraction to Brockley's Christmas Market on the same day promises farmers' market stalls plus locals arts and crafts, a raffle, carols as well as the obligatory "and more!"

From 4pm-6pm there will be free mulled wine, while the Ladywell Tavern will host a benefit gig by local bands from 8.30pm.

Locallife Sian, one of the organisers, explains:

"It's Ladywell's first attempt at a big event so we are hoping for lots of support. Over 250 leaflets enclosing a map of the local shops have been delivered but we're hoping to spread the message as widely as possible.

"Anyone coming will be rewarded with the smell of hot roast hog, mulled wine and mince pies, plus the Mayor will light the Christmas tree lights at 3pm."
