Columbia Road Christmas Wednesdays
Time Out says
The road famous for its flower market is swapping blooms for fir trees as its independent shops stay open until 9pm from these annual late-night Christmas evenings. Every Wednesday night in the lead up to Christmas you can beat the usual Sunday crowds, pick up unique stocking-fillers and grab a Christmas tree and fragrant festive greenery while you're at it. In true Dickensian style, there’ll also be carols singers accompanied by a piano that gets wheeled down the street by the local vicar, dancing Pearly Kings and steaming mugs of mulled wine on offer.
