The Lights Switch-On will take place on Thursday the 24th at 5pm with a special visit from a local celebrity.

The Christmas Market will include delicious street food, cakes and artisan foods, a mobile bar from local gastropub The Adam and Eve, plus jewellery, crafts and other gorgeous gifts.

A number of small businesses based in the Mill Hill area and Broadway shops will be taking part.

The Christmas Market is part of the programme of events known as Mill Hill Markets, an initiative organised by Mill Hill Neighbourhood Forum and Vibe Market. The markets aim to increase dwell time and footfall for the town centre, and add vibrancy to the high street. Mill Hill Markets is planning an exciting calendar of visiting markets in 2017. The Italian Market will return to the Broadway in March, and the French Market will visit in May and November 2017, with additional events in the planning stages.

John Gillett, chair of Mill Hill Neighbourhood Forum, said: “This is just one of the many initiatives we have for Mill Hill, to improve our Town Centre – do come along and also let us have your ideas for developing Mill Hill.”

Osita Udenson, managing director for Vibe Market, said: “We are excited to see Mill Hill get into the Christmas spirit with this fantastic event. Join us for great food and drink, holiday shopping, and music – all while supporting your local town centre.”

The Christmas Market is kindly being sponsored by HC Medspa, Barratt London, and Scrivens.
