Marylebone Village turns on their Christmas lights on November 10th at their Merry Marylebone event, and they have plenty of activities to do.
There will be a stage in Devonshire Street, with an evening of live music and choirs hosted by the BBC’s Jo Good.
Besides that, there are plenty of other things to do between 3pm and 7pm to get you in the Christmas spirit.
Wreath making, Santa’s cave, and even a Ferris wheel are just a few of the things that try to get you in the festive spirit.
To celebrate the occasion, more than 50 shops, bars, restaurants and cafes in the village will offer exclusive offers and menus for one night only.
Discounts of 20% are offered at several stores, including Paul Smith and Wolford, while Peloton, The Conran Shop and Little Greene offer in-store activities.
And for gourmets, there are promotions and special menus at Pain Quotidien and Crazy Pizza.

There will also be pop-up booths from 108 Brasserie, Golden Eagle and The Coachmakers Arms.
The entire event is in partnership with Mind in Brent, Wandsworth and Westminster.
