St Katharine Docks, Central London’s only marina, will host a unique, waterside Christmas lights switch-on celebration on Thursday 22nd November.

Lighting up the docks will be Father Christmas’ himself, who will arrive at St Katharine Docks on a speedboat sleigh to get everyone in the festive cheer and transform the marina with sparkling lights and a dazzling display of decorations.

The picturesque docks will be awash with festive live music and entertainment, with a carol concert from the City Chamber Choir and carols sung by the local Children’s Choir from St. Peters in Wapping.
Visitors will be kept warm with scrumptious Christmas treats from Benugo, including mulled wine, hot chocolate, mince pies and delicious ginger cookies to keep bellies full.

Thursday 22nd November 6-7pm Christmas Lights switch on, with free admission
