Winter in Leicester Square

Winter in Leicester Square

8th November to 5th January

For a vibrant festive hub in the city centre, look no further than Leicester Square! From 8th November to 5th January, this iconic London landmark will be transformed into a buzzing world of wintery wonder, with entertainment, illuminations and an excellent Christmas market.

Head to the 1920s Leicester Square Spiegeltent, the heart of festive entertainment. This enchanting, velvet-draped venue becomes home to an array of excellent performances, including this year’s headline, multi-award-winning show, La Clique. Ten years after winning Best Entertainment Olivier Award for its run at the Leicester Square Hippodrome, this dazzling spectacle returns to the West End: prepare to be amazed by its unique blend of circus, comedy and cabaret, featuring jugglers, fire-breathers, sword-swallowers – and a whole host more!

Mosey through the traditional Christmas market, discovering a world of independent traders and artisan products – from handmade jewellery, artwork and garments, to tasty temptations of homemade chutneys, jams, cheeses and festive tipples! Whether you’re hunting for the perfect last-minute present, or simply perusing for yourself, you’re sure to leave laden with charming, unique new purchases. If you’re visiting with children, try stage spectacular Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs: The Magic Cutlass, admire Westminster’s Winter Windows – decorated by seasonal sketches from local schoolchildren – and, of course, make sure to drop by Santa’s grotto.

Leicester Square is an easy tube journey from us at the Mercure Hyde Park, so it couldn’t be simpler to join in the festive cheer this winter!
