Royal Albert Wharf Christmas Market

Friday 2nd December 2022 , 4:00pm to 9:00pm

Join us this December for a festive paradise at Pump House Square, E16 2HU, in the heart of Royal Albert Wharf. Expect twinkling lights, heart-warming mulled wine, delicious street food, arts and crafts, an immersive Christmas installation for the whole family, and more!

The market features artists and makers stalls, where you will find everything from ceramics, hand-stitched gifts, and original prints all the way over to homeware, accessories, and much more. All at affordable prices!

Alongside the main market, organised in partnership with Ace Events, we will also be offering arts and crafts workshops at Art in the Docks, free face painting for the kids, as well as mulled wine from the Well Bean Cafe.

Shadow Play

Charlie Tymms, in partnership with Art in the Docks, will be running a project called SHADOW PLAY at RAW with around 12 participating artists.

Every night from Friday 2nd December until Christmas.

Wander along Royal Albert Wharf after dark and you might see something surprising… Shadow stories and images celebrating London’s diverse communities will light up the windows of the wharf. Perhaps you’ll glimpse a moment from docklands history, a tale from another time and place, or even a tightrope walking T-Rex! Each artist will create a unique Shadow Play picture in their studio window, making a cinematic journey along the waterside.
