Merchant Square Christmas Lights Switch On

Thursday 25th November @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us on Thursday 25th November as we get into the festive spirit and switch on our Christmas lights.

This year will be more magical than ever, with over 10km of lights illuminating Merchant Square between the Floating Pocket Park and St Mary’s Bridge and of course our 20 ft tree, decorated with a thousand lights twinkling onto the canal. We also be introducing a new light feature, the tunnel of light which will transform the Rolling Bridge into the perfect Christmas backdrop.

This year there will be lots of activity to compliment the festivities. From 5.30pm, expect complimentary mulled wine and cider, hot chocolate, mince pies and other festive treats served by Lockhouse on the floating bar. GAIL’s Bakery will also be treating us with their buttery cinnamon buns to warm our stomachs and celebrate their new opening in Merchant Square. Our food market’s newest arrival, Butter Clucker will be selling their signature menu with a Christmassy twist which you can enjoy whilst immersing yourself into the live entertainment throughout the evening to officially mark the beginning of the Christmas season.

The countdown will begin from 6pm. We hope you can join us for our festive evening!


The first 100 people to attend the event will receive a free glass of mulled wine, mince pies and cinnamon bun.

Alcohol will only be available to over 18’s and you may be asked to present your ID.

Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

UPDATE 25th November 2021 – GAIL’s Bakery will now be serving their freshly baked, home made mince pies which are celebrated as one of London’s best mince pies!
