Leytonstone Christmas Market Trail

The Christmas Market Trail

A day of local Christmas markets in the heart of Leytonstone set up to support the High Street and local designers and traders.

Set over three locations. Stones Throw Market in St John’s Hall, Church Lane Market on Church Lane and Lister Road Market on Lister Road. Each market is offering something different from Father Christmas and international food at Lister Road; handcrafted items and homemade treats on Church Lane plus local designs and retro wares at Stones Throw.

The day will be topped off with carol singers and a lantern walk from Lister Road to St John’s church.

A great community event giving locals the chance to buy something interesting for Christmas or simply to pop by for a bite to eat and a cup of tea. Entry to each market is free.

Closet Vinyl down at the Northcote

Happening at the Northcote Arms, Grove Green Road – You are the DJ, bring your own vinyl and take over the decks. We decided to try this out for ourselves at the start of November and we had a great night.

The organisers supply the decks, you bring your vinyl, or just come along for the music and few drinks.

These free events take you on a magical musical journey where you become the DJ. They’ll show you how to use the decks and you’ll be rocking the party on your own in no time. You’ll be wondering why you’ve never DJ’ed before.

It’s a brilliant night out, in a friendly environment and you’re guaranteed to hear some amazing tunes you haven’t heard in ages.

Next date Saturday 3rd December – for more details visit
