Kissing might be cancelled, but Christmas certainly isn’t!

Even though we are STILL IN October, the focus right now, more than ever is Christmas.

The distinct smell of mulled wine is now wafting through The Piazza, our friends at Pollocks have opened their Christmas Pop Up, ‘Benjamin’s Christmas Baazar’ and all the decorations are up in The Market Building.
‘Meet me under the Mistletoe’ is a firm favourite in Covent Garden. These iconic decorations designed by the legendary Michael Howell mark the start of the season. I was lucky enough to see the giant mistletoe be hauled up into the Market Building the other night. I tried to drag a piece of unattended mistletoe home, but didn’t get far…

Unfortunately, there’ll be no random kissing under the mistletoe in Covent Garden this year. However, we can certainly celebrate the area we love in a safe way.
