Immerse yourself in all things festive with Leicester Square's massive annual pop-up, featuring a full-on Christmas market, festive lights, eating and drinking options galore, and live entertainment curated by Underbelly. This year, it returns to Leicester Square from November 8 to January 7 for the 2023 winter season. 

The main attraction is the Aussie alternative circus and cabaret show ‘La Clique’, which will once again take up residence in a huge spiegeltent for eight weeks. Although full details for 2023 haven't been announced, in previous years the line-up has also included kids and family shows, too.

And while you're there, you can bank on nearby refreshments, attractions and festive shopping. The line-up of fun typically includes festive food and drink stalls and a traditional Christmas market will be open to all, whether or not you have a show ticket.
