Let’s hear those sleigh bells ringing … South London style: Festive fun comes to Herne Hill!!
From free footrubs to a green Santa, there’s plenty of fun for kids and adults alike in Herne Hill this month, as our favourite corner of South London brings together lots of lovely local traders to create a host of unmissable Christmas events.

The Herne Hill Forum Christmas Fair is coming to town. But like the mercury in the thermometer, our volunteer numbers are low. We could really use some help to make the event a success. We'd be happy with as much or as little time that you have to offer. To get an idea of what we're looking for, here are some of the activities we need help with and a rough idea of the time:
From 27th Nov to 12th Dec
Poster and flyer circulation/put up around the local shops, noticeboards, doctor's surgeries, play groups etc (several people at 1-2 hours)
Paint blackboard (1-2 hours)
Create a backdrop for the piano
Friday 12th December
Set up and decorate the Grotto (2-3 hours)
Present wrapping for the Grotto (2-3 hours)
Set up the marquee (2 hours)
Saturday 13th December
Decorate and set up the activity venues (2-3 hours each)
Help decorate the stalls (1-2 hours)
Come and join the fun outside Kinleigh Folkard & Hayward on Friday 12 December after school from 3.30pm.Enjoy festive carols, a Christmas tipple, a mince pie or two, late night shopping events and more!
Stop by the Training Station, 280 Milkwood Road from 11:00am on Sunday 23rd and 30th November for Arka's launch and pop-up boutique. Showcasing contemporary and traditional India including accessories, bags, cushions, kaftans and scarves.
We're looking for musicians to help bring a festive atmosphere to the streets of Herne Hill during the Christmas Fair (13th December) and late night shopping events (11th & 18th December).
