Christmas comes to King’s Cross with carols, a festive pop-up and an alternative Christmas tree

Plus festive markets and twinkling lights

Posted: Monday 27th November 2017

This Christmas head to King’s Cross to eat, drink, shop and be merry, alongside a backdrop of festive lights, carols and a very special alternative Christmas tree.

The King’s Cross tree is always a showstopper and this year is no different. DOES THE ITERATIVE FIT, a new artwork by Joanne Tatham and Tom O’Sullivan, is a chaos of shapes, colours and lights, with an alternative Christmas soundtrack to boot. The tree is the latest commission for The King’s Cross Project, curated by Tamsin Dillon and Rebecca Heald.

To kick off advent, a festive pop-up space is opening at N1C featuring DJ’s, cocktails, mulled wine, a Christmas Makers Boutique and more, meanwhile the ever growing retail offer along King’s Boulevard including Jigsaw, Nike, Carhartt WIP and & Other Stories will have longer opening hours allowing you more time to get that last minute Christmas shopping done.

Other festive diary essentials include the Illustrator’s Christmas Fair, the School of Life’s Alternative Christmas Carol Concert, back by popular demand, as well as Dishoom’s Christmas Carols and a Christmas themed Canopy Market.

Our very own King’s Cross Musician in Residence, Dame Evelyn Glennie, will be performing the world premiere of a new composition inspired by the sights and sounds captured by the local community during the past year.

Finally, if you are looking to see in the New Year in lavish style, head to Spiritland for a night of indulgent dining, drinking and dancing, featuring a special menu and top DJs.
