Bermondsey, 21st to the 25th of November 2018.
Held in a church which is possibly the only church in the UK with a sauna. During the fairs Finnish Church provides live music, Finnish treats and gifts including Finnish food like rye bread, cloudberry jam, freshly roasted Christmas coffee and so on. There will be Finnish sweets such as Fazer chocolate and salt liquorice. Also on offer is Nordic design, from Moomin, Iittala, Arabaia and Pentik as well as stunningly beautiful reindeer hides. You don’t closer to Lapland outside the Nordics…

Get together with the Norwegian community to enjoy some mulled wine and Christmas treats. There will be plenty of Norwegian waffles, open style sandwiches and much more. On sale is a fantastic range of Norwegian design which will make excellent gifts. It’s also the place to stock up on Norwegian specialities such as the Freia milk chocolate. Expect lots of Christmas ‘hygge’ and you might even get to dance around the Christmas tree!

Delightful Scandinavian Christmas Fair in Hampstead selling a combination of traditional and timeless Danish Christmas decorations as well as Christmas wreaths. There’s plenty of festive food and a raffle. There’s a Danish hot dog kiosk outside the fair. I have no idea how that relates to Christmas – but it’s well worth a visit!

  1. Hello are there any Christmas Markets events in December? I’m gutted I missed the events in November.

  2. Last year, I went to all four fairs to buy a hotdog and to buy a string of each nations flags for the Xmas tree.
    Here are the results: Norwegian £1 per string of paper ( flags, Swedish £2 per string of paper( flags, Danish £3.50 per string of tiny cloth ( flags and Finnish £5 per string of large cloth (( flags. Does that say something about the implied self worth of each country?
    You really do not want to know the results from the hotdogs.
    Finally, why is there no Icelandic fair? Maybe they would get it mixed up with Iceland, the supermarkets?
