Covent Garden

Covent Garden
There is a chill in the London air, which can only mean the seasons are changing and the time for merriment is almost upon us.


Make sure you embrace the Christmas spirit by celebrating the most wonderful time of the year in Covent Garden when we turn on our Christmas lights on from 17.30 on Tuesday 14 November.


The festive celebrations begin with performances from the acclaimed hit West End musical 42nd Street who will be performing some of the most iconic numbers from the show. Join Pudsey and his special guests for the switch on moment, as Covent Garden teams up with BBC Children in Need for the first time.

You can expect the return of our 40 magnificent mistletoe chandeliers - each ranging from 2.5 to 3.5 metres in size, adorned with almost 700 glistening berries. Over 320 metres of garlands unite the chandeliers, with around 100,000 pea lights suspended within the historic Market Building. Outside, the world famous Piazza will once again host London’s biggest hand-picked Christmas tree and the return of our magnificent reindeer statue on the East Piazza!
