Leadenhall Market Christmas LightsThe Lord Mayor of the City of London turns out in all his regalia to light up the Christmas Illuminations in the ornate Leadenhall Market by triggering them (and considerable amounts of confetti) with a plunger. It's all done to live choral music setting the tone for the moment the Mayor hits the switch.
Leadenhall Market is a beautiful Victorian-themed setting for this friendly festive event. The celebrations begin at 5pm with mulled wine, mince pies and hot cider punch, and carries on into the evening with plenty of music and entertainment. The Lord Mayor officially switches on the lights at 6pm. The event is free, but do turn up late as numbers are limited and it's sure to be a popular night out in the City. Leadenhall Market, with its Dickensian feel, is also a lovely place to get a few presents in the run up to Christmas.

 

About Leadenhall Market

Leadenhall Market is a restored Victorian covered market that sells traditional game, poultry, fish and meat. Although there has been a forum (market place) on where Leadenhall Market stands today since the first century AD, the current wrought iron and glass building was designed in 1881 by Sir Horace Jones (architect of Old Billingsgate and Smithfield Markets).
