Everyone is welcome to attend Myatt’s Fields Park annual Christmas market and carol concert on 15th December, with carols round the bandstand accompanied by the South London Concert Band from 5pm.

In the afternoon, there will be a small Christmas market on and around the bandstand (we’ll put tables on the bandstand and under a marquee for stall holders). If you would like to book a stall, fill in the form attached and return it to me at this email address or post it in the box outside the park depot. Tables will be confirmed on receipt of payment.

The cafe and event will be run by volunteers. We’d very much appreciate donated cakes for our cake stall, plus help on the day (setting up, clearing away, volunteering in the cafe).

Many thanks to Minet Conservation Association which is funding the event.
