However, catching up on television in the warmth of your Jigsaw home need not be the only worthwhile pastime this month, as Ealing has you covered over the holiday season with lots of seasonal attractions to go and savour, enjoy and make a day out of.
After the success of its inaugural edition, the Ealing Christmas Market returns to Ealing Broadway Centre for its second year, bringing a unique selection of gifts to west London. A highlight of the market will once again be The Wonderland Collective – a beautifully decorated cabin featuring luxury and hand designed gifts.
Alongside a selection of the more traditional Christmas stalls, there will also be a series of weekly popup boutiques and also an appearance from Father Christmas himself, who will be taking time out of his busy schedule to visit Ealing at the weekends.
The Christmas Market is open daily from now until Christmas Eve. To see Ealing Broadway Centre’s seasonal opening times, visit ealingbroadwayshopping.co.uk

Perhaps Christmas is about stepping out of your traditional festive zone and trying a new slice of culture and cuisine? Popular Japanese restaurant, Wagamama, can offer that new horizon as they are running an ‘omakase’ Chef Special menu in Ealing over December. ‘Omakase’ meaning “over to you”, is a common saying in Japan and will ensure something different for the culinary brave! You can enjoy three courses for £19.95 or two courses for £16.95, which includes a glass of prosecco for every person.
Ealing Artisan, the weekly Sunday food and craft market in Ealing Broadway will also be getting festive throughout December, with special events on the 3rd, 10th and 17th December between 11am-3pm.
Located in the new Dickens Yard development, on Uxbridge Road between Ealing Town Hall and Christ the Saviour Church, Ealing Artisan shows off an impressive array of crafts, produce and street-food stalls.
If festive theatre is more your vibe, then catch a performance of Mother Goose Panto
at The Judy Dench Playhouse/Questors Theatre, which is a short walk away from the new Honest Burgers
joint near Ealing Broadway. Mother Goose runs from the 14th
December to New Year’s Day.
Tickets are £16 for adults and £8 for children, with a family discount at £44 for any shows before the 19th
December, with the prices marginally increasing to £18, £9 and £48 respectively after the 20th
