I have no idea why I didn’t know about this event when my children were little, especially as I have lived in the Wimbledon area ever since I moved to London. Is a great day out for the kiddies and perfect for Christmas shopping.
I have always loved markets, the little canopies with their colourful bunting and twinkling lights, the smell of hot food and the sight of cake displays constantly teasing my taste buds. I love meeting and getting know other traders with their vast array of different products and hand crafted goodies and of course, I really enjoy chatting with (and selling to) the lovely people who come to visit.
The Wimbledon winter wonderland is a huge event (organised by www.LoveWimbledon.org) … and the busiest market of the year. This was the first time I took part. The market ran from the Friday until the Sunday … the Sunday being the main day.
The Broadway closed to cars for the day to make way for a magical carousel, snowboard simulator, bucking reindeer and snow dome photoboth.
With a brass band playing in the piazza and lots of interesting Christmas characters mingling among the crowds … the start of the festive season was truly marked in style!
A good time definitely had by all … good for business and lots and lots of fun.
Well done LoveWimbledon!
