Cricklewood will usher in the festive season with Winterfest on Saturday 23 November 2013. St Michael’s and All Angels Steel Band will get the party started.
The event will see the day’s activities themed around light, with a hand-made gift market, hot food stalls, street theatre, a laser-light show, arts and crafts, mulled wine, stage entertainment and carols.
The festivities will last from 1 pm to 6pm outside the Crown Moran Hotel and on Yew Grove, which will be closed to traffic.
