1. Browse stalls selling Japanese fashion, toys, wrapping paper and crockery at Hyper Japan Christmas Market. Pick up edible presents in a food hall packed full of exotic teas, chocolate and Japanese snacks. Or sip sake while you bask in traditional Japanese illuminations. All this Sunday at Tobacco Dock. Tickets are priced at £15 to £17.
2. Fill your face with street food, let the kids loose on fairground rides and pick up a mulled wine or three while you wait for the pretty Primrose Hill Christmas lights switch on at Primrose Hill Christmas Festival. The action takes place at Regent’s Park Road on Sun. And, it's all free.
3. Dog lovers can get their mutts – sorry, mitts – on designer petwear, pooch-friendly peanut butter and doggie cushions at Santa Paws. Head down to Netil Market on for this cool canine market which is free to attend.
