Start The Festivities at Seven Dials’ Winter Warm Up This November
Seven Dials presents Winter Warm Up – a joyous evening of winter entertainment, festive workshops, seasonal food, and Christmas shopping in the heart of London’s West End
Visit Seven Dials on Thursday 17th November, as Seven Dials’ Winter Warm Up event kicks off the festive season. Free to all, ticket holders can experience a variety of festive workshops, seasonal food, on-street entertainment, and exclusive discounts – warming the hearts, minds, and hands of all in attendance.
With the entirety of Seven Dials’ streets pedestrianised, visitors can see the unveiling of the new festive decorations, with sparkling starbursts illuminating the seven streets through cosy hues of amber and pink. Neal’s Yard Festive Arch can be brought to life with a tap point donation to Seven Dials’ charity partner, The Connection, who are operating a coat drop station throughout the evening.
Visitors taking in the views can grab a complimentary Winter Warm Up cocktail, mocktail or toasted marshmallows, or sample seasonal menus from Seven Dials’ cafes, bars and restaurants. Taking to the stage around the Dial will be the Creative Vocal Freedom Choir, providing a seasonal soundtrack of classics to the evening, and LED light performers with vivid 15 minute shows.
Ticket holders can also embrace the festivities by taking part in free interactive workshops found throughout the seven streets. From candle, wreath and cracker making, to an eco-friendly face glitter station, there’s an activity for everyone at Winter Warm Up.

ENTERTAINMENT & WORKSHOPS
Winter Warm Up has something for all ages. Visitors can take advantage of nighttime winter skincare consultations at Kiehls, home scenting candle and diffuser workshops at Miller Harris, or winter fragrance blending consultations at Experimental Perfume Company.
Seven Dials Market will also be home to a free sustainable wrapping station. Providing a convenient stop for eco-conscious shoppers, it’s the perfect place for visitors to enjoy a complimentary mulled wine while waiting.
For those looking to explore the Dial, the Seven Harts of Seven Dials treasure hunt will be the perfect way to do so. Collect a treasure map from an information booth and wander through the streets to discover seven special vinyls found on store windows. After finding them all and marking the hunt card, simply deposit the card back at an information booth to be in with a chance of winning up to £200 of exclusive prizes from Seven Dials stores.
