Christmas Comes to Covent Garden

Welcome to Covent Garden London
Covent Garden Christmas launch 2012

Christmas kicks off on Wednesday November
Come down to Covent Garden on Wednesday night for the first of many magical moments we've got planned for Christmas 2012. We'll be switching on more than 150,000 lights to a festive soundtrack courtesy of the London Gay Men's Choir who'll be serenading shoppers every Saturday until Christmas.
Giant baubles, pea lights and glitter balls
The giant red baubles and glitter balls in the Market Building were such a huge hit last year that they're back. Plus we've increased the winter wonderland effect with thousands of pea lights in the streets surrounding the Piazza.
