Until the 23 December, come and join the celebrations in Trafalgar Square for the Christmas tree lighting, carol singing and the blessing of the crib.
The countdown to Christmas starts with the lighting of the world’s most famous Christmas tree in Trafalgar Square.
The Norwegian Spruce is a gift from the people of Norway to London to say thank you for Britain’s support during World War II. This historic tradition has happened every year since 1947. The tree will be lit by the Mayor of Westminster, Norwegian Ambassador and governing Mayor of Oslo. The Salvation Army and St Martin-in-the-Fields choir will sing carols.
More than 50 carol groups will be taking part over the period, each singing for an hour. Performances take place from 4-8pm weekdays, and 2-6pm weekends.
