Forget the seasonal John Lewis advert and Slade playing in supermarkets…the festive season will really get underway at the Tottenham Winter Festival on December 2.
The annual event on Tottenham Green will see a mouth-watering variety of stalls alongside festive, family friendly entertainment and the official Christmas tree lights switch on led by Spurs legend Ledley King at around 5pm.
This year’s community celebration, organised by Tottenham Green Market and Haringey Council, will also coincide with an Etsy Made Local Tottenham event that will see Tottenham Town Hall packed with craft stalls offering plenty of present-buying-opportunities.
Other entertainment includes: a ten-piece Afrobeat band, the Haringey Young Musicians Junior Choir, a brass band called Brunk!, a funky Colombian-influenced band and a ‘panto medley’ from the Musical Theatre Academy (MTA) based a few metres away in the Bernie Grant Arts Centre.
Tottenham Green Market stalls will boast a variety of international street food as well as showcasing some of Tottenham’s finest including: Prestige Patisserie (adding a Christmas Cake Shop and mulled wine to their regular treats), honey from Tottenham Marshes, beer from Brewheadz and hot drinks courtesy of Craving Coffee.
