Christmas tree lighting and market at Charlton House this Thursday

Charlton House
A Christmas tree is returning to Charlton House this year

Charlton House’s Christmas tree makes a comeback on Thursday, with a lighting-up ceremony to be held from 4pm.

There’ll also be a Christmas market in the Great Hall from 3.30pm to 6pm, with carols and readings from St Luke’s Church at 5pm. You’ll also be able to nip over the road and climb St Luke’s tower to get a view of the capital after dark.

The event is also the launch of a new cafe inside Charlton House, Frilly’s, which will offer “a seasonal snack menu including mince pies, mulled wine, hot chocolate, and sausage rolls”.

More details on the Charlton House website (and the St Luke’s website for the tower tours).
