In years gone by, a delightful festive pop-up has materialised right in the centre of one of London’s most iconic spaces, with a full-on Christmas market, food and drink, and entertainment curated by Underbelly. For obvious reasons, it didn’t happen last year and there’s still mystery surrounding what exactly will be landing in Leicester Square for the 2021 festive season. 

The one thing we do know is that alternative circus and cabaret show ‘La Clique’ is back, taking up residence in a huge spiegeltent for eight weeks from November 13 to January 8 2022. And if there’s a show, there’s bound to be some nearby refreshments, attractions and shopping opportunities for its audience, right?

Watch this space for the latest updates on Christmas in Leicester Square  we’ll bring you news as soon as we have it.
