Battersea Power Station opens its Winter Village

Festive joy is being spread in Wandsworth this Christmas as Battersea Power Station opens its Winter Village.

As well as lights, a bauble installation and a 30ft tall Christmas tree, the month-long event will feature a market, food and films.

Santa Claus has set up a workshop with a special post box for the North Pole.

There are rides and games for visitors to enjoy including Youle Boules, Reindeer Toss and Feed the Snowman, as well as a Toy Town Carousel and Vintage Ferris Wheel.

The Winter Village’s craft market stalls have a selection of gifts and crafts, including homeware, fashion accessories and more from local artisans, plus food and drink pop-ups serving treats.

Battersea Power Station’s annual Give a Book for Christmas appeal will also be returning.

For the last three years, the appeal has been supported by the employees working at Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) and the contractors working on the regeneration project.

By making this a public appeal, the hope is that more schoolchildren in Battersea will go home with a present this Christmas.

The Cinema in The Arches will have a line-up of classics including A Christmas Carol and The Grinch.

The Nine Elms Advent Calendar is back for its third year, featuring 24 installations inspired by the theme of peace on earth.
