Christmas Fayre to bring festive cheer to Hampstead Heath
Hampstead Heath is set to host a Christmas Fayre, for the first time this winter. The Fayre will include a Christmas tree market, fairground rides for young children, a German style market selling festive goods and some seasonal food and drink stalls. The Fayre will be located at East Heath – close to the South End Green entrance to the Heath and conveniently located for Hampstead Heath overground station.
Running from 27 November 2021 until 2 January 2022 the Fayre promises to be a fun, family-centred event to help everyone get into the Christmas spirit. The Fayre will open daily at 9am for the sale of Christmas trees. The market and children’s rides will open at 11am and the event will close at 7pm. This is a free event and no advance booking is required.
Chair of the City of London Corporation’s Hampstead Heath Management Committee, Anne Fairweather, said: “A visit to the Hampstead Heath Christmas Fayre followed by a long walk over the Heath, will be the perfect way to enjoy the festivities with friends and family and I’m sure local residents to the Heath will be pleased that they have another option for buying a real Christmas tree.”
The popular Hampstead Heath 2022 Calendar is also now on sale, with profits going to Heath Hands - the Heath’s volunteer charity. The calendar can be purchased online at www.heath-hands.org.uk/shop or from the Parliament Hill Office on Hampstead Heath. The calendar, which was a sell-out in 2021, will also be sold at the Parliament Hill Farmers Market in the lead up to Christmas.
Hampstead Heath is one of London's most popular open spaces, attracting almost 10 million visits a year.
Situated just six kilometres from Trafalgar Square, the beauty spot is a Site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation, and recognised for containing some of the best examples of the capital’s habitats, including rare and important species which are of particular significance within a heavily built-up area of London.
The City of London Corporation has managed Hampstead Heath since 1989, when it took responsibility for the care and management of the site from the London Residual Body (LRB), following the dissolution of the Greater London Council (GLC).
Hampstead Heath is a registered charity, funded by revenue generated though services, grants, donations and over £5m a year from the City Corporation.
