This Christmas-themed Weekender is our last of the year. What a year it’s been! From Guinea Fowl Pop-Ups to poisonous cocktails, grasshoppers and guacamole and tomato target practice, we’ve brought you the best that London has to offer, every Friday.
We’re looking forward to an influx of new and inspiring hospitality offers in the new year. Keep your eyes peeled for our 2019 digital hospitality marketing trend forecast in January!
For now, we’re leaving you with the best foodie and festive events happening in London this weekend, and the sincere wish of a happy new year to all.
Coca-Cola is famously responsible for the jolly, white-haired, red-clad image of Santa that the entire world knows and loves today. The renowned refrain from their Christmas adverts – santaclausiscomngsantaclausiscoming – signals the start of the festive season for many. The famous Coca-Cola Christmas Lorry will be in Croydon all weekend. Pop down and glory in red-and-white-branded Christmas spirit.
If the weather’s total failure to provide that longed-for white Christmas is getting you down, worry not. It’s going to be snowing five times a day at The Petersham Restaurant in Richmond. Timed to coincide with lunch, tea and dinner sittings of their special festive menu (which includes all the usual favourites like turkey and Christmas pudding) their fake snow display will, naturally, be accompanied by a window-cleaning Father Christmas. Nope, us neither…
If fake snow in Richmond is a bit of a stretch – both geographically and for your cold, broke and alcohol-sodden December brain – then a much easier to digest, bonafide Christmas classic is returning to a Thameside rooftop. Coppa Club’s Igloos on London’s South Bank are the cosy and comfortable way to experience the current cold snap.
