Ealing Christmas Market

Ealing Christmas Market

  • Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Ealing Christmas Market returns to Ealing Broadway Centre for its second year on Thursday 23rd November, bringing a unique selection of gifts to West London.

A highlight of the market will once again be The Wonderland Collective – a beautifully decorated cabin featuring luxury and hand designed gifts, many of which you won’t find anywhere else in West London. Known for their design-led popups around London, the collective showcases artisans, makers & creative businesses from across the UK, with an emphasis on British made products. Alongside a selection of the more traditional Christmas stalls you expect at this time of year, there’ll also be a series of weekly popup boutiques from the likes of Home Address, Mala & Bunga and Erskine Rose. Bespoke lighting installations from Chiswick’s Light Fixation will adorn the cabins and also available to purchase.  
 
Father Christmas will be on hand at the weekends and there’s an ice cave every day for the kids to enjoy. Hungry shoppers can stay replenished from a selection of street food stalls (and mulled wine) or rest their weary feet in the covered seating area before. 
 
It’s a familiar Christmas setting – with festive wood cabins, traditional decorations & twinkling lights – but a whole new shopping experience for West London. So don’t go for boring presents this Christmas – make yourself the most popular friend, brother, daughter, parent, or lover in town and head to Ealing for the ultimate Christmas gift ideas.

An adventure to Magic Mountain to save a little goose from a wicked troll

Smorg the wicked troll wants to steal Heidi the little goose away from Mother Goose – and eat her for his Christmas dinner! But Heidi is no ordinary goose – she can lay golden eggs. And so when the grumpy Baron Von Rumpensmakka finds out he wants to snatch her away too – and make lots of money from her golden eggs. 

Mother Goose tries her best to keep little Heidi safe, but when Smorg tricks her into taking a bath in the Bog of Beauty she loses little Heidi. The caring Fairy Aurora comes to the rescue but decides to send Heidi away to the Land of the Snow Geese and the Palace of Light on Magic Mountain – a place where no human has ever been.

Now Mother Goose and her daughter must take the perilous flight by hot air balloon to Magic Mountain to convince The Grand High Snow Goose to let Heidi come home. But the wicked troll and the grumpy Baron are racing there too - will Mother Goose get there in time to save little Heidi?

Join us on a fun, family adventure this Christmas with Mother Goose - our laugh-out-loud panto. Sing along, shout at the nasty troll, meet the Giant Geese of Boundtobiteyou and even do some yodelling! Oh - and don’t forget to wear your Christmas jumper!

Tales of Christmas Past

A wonderful family show, full of laughter and warmth.

Tales of Christmas Past is a new show where A Wonderful Adventure reanimates three traditional Christmas stories!

Old Father Christmas by Juliana Horatia Ewing: a beautiful tale about two children who meet an old man who resembles the picture of Old Father Christmas from their picture book. Could it really be him?

The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore: This enchanting classic poem read by many the night before Christmas captures the special magic of the festive season.

A Kidnapped Santa Claus by L. Frank Baum, famous as the creator of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, it has been called “one of Baum’s most beautiful stories.
 
These stories have been woven into a dramatic performance with beautiful storytelling, puppetry and Christmas cheer for all the family!

She’s back!!! Soprano Aivale Cole will be joined by friends for a night of music from the world of Opera, Musical Theatre, Pop and ending the night with your favourite sing-a-long Christmas Carols. A night not to be missed for all your friends and family! Tickets are £20 per person and children 11 years and under is entry by donation at the door. 

As well as a time of celebration, £5 from each ticket sold will be donated to our friends at Age UK Ealing for their annual Christmas Day Lunch.

Age UK Ealing is an independent charity supporting older people in Ealing. Their mission is to help older people have an enjoyable later life. This includes the provision of valuable services to help the elderly with their everyday living requirements such as housing issues, social and wellbeing needs.

Their day care service is independently funded by the centre whom receive no external funding. This includes the provision of day care three days a week, an option for a hot two course meal, an essential part of the day as many older people live alone and miss the social aspect of having a meal with friends and family.

This year, the donation from ticket sales will go towards providing Christmas Day lunch for the members at the centre. The cost for this is £10 per person and we hope to provide full funding for this event for 30 older people from the group and the local community.

So on behalf of Age UK Ealing we want to thank you for your support of this event and our community!

Note: The Bar will open at 6pm and doors will open at 6.30pm. So arrive early with your friends and have a glass of bubbly before the concert starts. You can take your drinks in with you too!
