Covent Garden Christmas Lights 2016The Royal Opera Chorus and The Royal Ballet fill Covent Garden's famous Piazza with song and dance before the Sugar Plum Fairy herself officially switches on the Covent Garden Christmas Lights on Tuesday 15th November 2016. The covered market and surrounding area are filled with Tchaikovsky's notable score to The Nutcracker as the decorations - including over 45 mistletoe chandeliers and 80,000 pealights - are lit up. Notorious for its festive lighting extravaganzas, Covent Garden is one of London's most magical areas at Christmas, with mistletoe for the romantics and a LEGO installation for families.

 

About Covent Garden Piazza

This is where Covent Garden Market takes place but there's also an open-air cobbled area where miming and juggling acts can often be found. The 40ish market stalls sell a variety of quality goods: antiques, craft items, pictures and handmade clothing so it's a great place to find gifts. More about Covent Garden Piazza
