Glisten and Glow – Winter in the Royal Docks
Get together with friends and family, venture outside and explore, or cosy up at home with this collection of activities and events across the Royal Docks in December.
Starting on Friday 2nd December, One Christmas Wish and Patchlarks’ Glisten and Glow take family-friendly storytelling to a series of community-led events that will bring Royal Docks neighbourhoods together. The festive celebrations include Christmas lights, arts and crafts, dancing and live music.
Or grab a Glisten and Glow map and explore the area whenever you like, find the Christmas trees, or snuggle up to read their festive tale, jokes and winter recipes.
Wander along Royal Albert Wharf after dark and you might see something surprising...Shadow stories and images celebrating London's diverse communities will light up the windows of the wharf.
A festive paradise at the heart of Royal Albert Wharf, with twinkling lights, heart-warming mulled wine, delicious street food and arts & crafts, and an immersive Christmas installation for the whole family
