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, festive lights, many eating and drinking options and entertainment curated by Underbelly. This year, it returns to Leicester Square from November 9 to January 7 for the 2022 winter season. 

The main attraction is the alternative circus and cabaret show ‘La Clique’, which will take up residence in a huge spiegeltent for eight weeks with its brand new cast for 2022. When ‘La Clique’ isn’t on (every Wednesday to Sunday and some Tuesdays), there’s a bunch of kids’ events planned too, including Baby Loves Disco and ‘The Bubble Show’.

And while you're there, you can bank on nearby refreshments, attractions and festive shopping. Festive food and drink stalls and a traditional Christmas market will be open to all, whether or not you have a show ticket.
