Explore the Greenwich Winter Time Festival, a new riverside Christmas experience at the Old Royal Naval College.

Set in the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site, with the iconic Cutty Sark and river Thames as a backdrop, the festival mixes Christmas traditions with modern additions for an alternative Christmas day out in London.

Activities at the Greenwich Winter Time Festival

  • Watch a breathtaking ice skating performance on the Greenwich Winter Time ice rink, which is protected by a clear roof covering wrapped in twinkling lights, before taking to the ice yourself.
  • Drop by the Mirror Stage to catch performances by bands, DJs and choirs, including Kansas Smitty's House Band, Only Men Aloud, The Puppini Sisters and The Sons Of Pitches.
  • Browse the Christmas market for local designer items and independent brands from the UK and abroad, each set in its own white geometric pod.
  • Feast on artisan street food and festive favourites from Greenwich Kitchen and more specialist suppliers.
  • Watch acrobats, musicians and magicians perform across the site.
  • Enjoy a screening of classic Christmas film The Snowman accompanied by live music from the East London Brass.
