Wednesday 23 November 2016. The Christmas festivities in Greenwich begin with the local school children's hand made lantern procession and the switching on of the Christmas lights in Greenwich Market.
The procession will start at 4pm in front of the Discover Greenwich Visitor Centre at the ORNC and will wind its way to the Market.
The big countdown at 16.45 will be with Sarah Jane Honeywell from CBeeBees and characters from this year's Greenwich Playhouse panto.
All can join in singing Christmas Carols, meet Father Christmas in his Greenwich Grotto and shop late through to 19.00.
