Greenwich Council is bringing its Sparkle in the Park Christmas light trail to Charlton this year, holding it in Maryon Park from 1-5 December.
The event is free and features music and performances as well as market stalls.
Last year’s event was held in Avery Hill Park, Eltham, but had capped visitor numbers and finished early because of the lockdown.
What a lovely event Sparkle in the Park was, congratulations to all those involved in it and to @Royal_Greenwich for putting on something to cheer us all up. Very well distanced as well. @EEALondon pic.twitter.com/5LWxbrAkD9

At present, there are no plans to ticket the Maryon Park event – visitors can just turn up.
Council leader Danny Thorpe said: “We’re very excited to be bringing a bigger and better Sparkle in the Park back to the borough this year. As well as the spectacular light trail, delicious food and fairground rides, visitors will be able to enjoy magical Christmas activities, live performances and seasonal market stalls.”
Adel Khaireh, the cabinet member for culture, said: “Sparkle in the Park gives all our communities a chance to come together and celebrate without hefty ticket prices to worry about. We’ll also be making sure our festive fun is open to everyone with a paved walkway to follow around the light trail and accessible facilities.”
