Museum of London - A Christmas market and December events

What's on in December?
Come one, come all for a festive cheer at the Christmas Fayre in partnership with Crafty Foxon 8 December at the Museum of London Docklands. Our annual night market will have over 60 designers and gift making workshops for all your Christmas shopping needs, as well as a DJ and mulled wine to set the mood.
