On Saturday, December 2nd, the independent businesses at Wapping Wharf will be coming together to celebrate Christmas from 12pm to 6pm.

On the day, there’ll be a whole host of offers and discounts at Wapping Wharf, as well as special Christmas food and drink and more. Expect everything from a satsuma peeling competition to Madeira tasting, Greek seasonal specials to mulled wine and cider, a hog roast to Christmas mandarin Margaritas…there’ll be something for everyone, and some surprise entertainment too!

The event is free to attend, and timed to coincide with Small Business Saturday, echoing Wapping Wharf’s ethos of supporting independent local businesses.
