The Winter Village – Battersea Power Station

The Winter Village returns to Battersea Power Station and it’s just as magical as you remember!

Travel down the tunnel of starlight, past the candy cane forest, until you reach the huge Nutcrackers guarding Battersea Power Station’s Winter Village this year. Take a selfie with a larger-than-life bauble installation along the route, marvel at the 30ft Christmas tree with over 19,000 LED lights, and enjoy the range of family-friendly attractions offered at this year’s festive riverfront event, which runs from December 2nd to January 3rd.

Things to do: 

  • Visit the Winter Village’s Craft Market, it’s a great place to pick up unique gifts for family and friends.
  • Indulge in delectable holiday delicacies from the market’s diverse selection of pop-up food huts and Circus West Village merchants.
  • Fairground rides, including a vintage Ferris Wheel, and colourful games provide family-friendly entertainment.
  • Visit Santa’s Workshop and write a letter to the jolly old elf himself.
  • Donate to Battersea Power Station’s annual ‘Give a Book for Christmas’ effort to spread some Christmas cheer.
  • Watch some Christmas classics at The Cinema in the Arches, The Cat in the Hat can be seen at The Turbine Theatre, and holiday virtual reality experiences to be had at DNA VR.

Santa Claus will be building up an extra workshop at The Winter Village this Christmas since he has so many presents to give. It’s not too late for the little ones who haven’t yet sent him their wish list! Santa’s workshop will have a unique post box for the North Pole, so he can stay on top of his deliveries for December 24th!

Santa’s elves are hard at work creating some fun attractions and games for tourists to enjoy, like Youle Boules, Reindeer Toss, and Feed the Snowman, as well as a Toy Town Carousel and Vintage Ferris Wheel.

The Craft Market booths in the Winter Village will have a great selection of gifts and crafts from local craftsmen, including homeware, fashion accessories, and more, perfect for Christmas gifts, as well as food and drink pop-ups providing delectable delights.

Battersea Power Station’s annual ‘Give a Book for Christmas’ fundraiser will also be returning for anyone who wants to share some Christmas cheer. It is hoped that this Christmas, more local Battersea schoolchildren will get a gift.

It’s the season to feast, and Battersea Power Station’s magnificent merchants and restaurants will be serving Christmas delights throughout the holiday season. Cinnamon Kitchen’s Tandoori Spiced Venison and Garam Masala Christmas Pudding, Fiume’s Pumpkin and Truffle Tortelli followed by Cinnamon and Coffee Panna Cotta, and No. 29 Power Station’s roast Norfolk turkey with all the trimmings promises delectable cuisine.

Christmas wouldn’t be complete without watching some festive flicks, and The Cinema in The Arches will be showing a selection of holiday favourites, including A Christmas Carol and The Grinch. From the 13th to the 23rd of December, the Turbine Theatre will present the critically renowned stage rendition of Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat, and DNA VR, a virtual reality arcade, will have some unique Christmas themed games – great for family outings (12 years and over).

For the third year in a row, the wonderful Nine Elms Advent Calendar is returning, with 24 bespoke installations inspired by the subject of ‘Peace on Earth.’ An Advent Calendar Window will be hosted by Paul Edmonds, White & Co., Moyses Stevens, DNA VR, and The Turbine Theatre. Battersea Power Station will also be exhibiting a window designed by local light artist Andrew Gibson, which will be unveiled on the same evening as the Power Station’s Christmas tree light switch-on, on December 2nd.
