The school Christmas break is soon upon us and parents and guardians alike will be looking for ways to keep kids occupied during the festive season. Well, to beat the winter blues a festive Sip and Paint is coming to these markets across London that’ll keep both you and the kids jolly, cheerful and entertained, and the best part is it’s completely free.
Indoor market Market Place is hosting a free family-friendly Sip and Paint at their venues in Vauxhall, Harrow and Peckham on December 21 and 22 from 12-5pm where adults will be able to sip on complimentary mulled wine and unwind as the kids get their faces painted for the perfect Christmas activity with the family.
Market Place has a whole load of food vendors tucked away in its markets for you and the kids to explore so you can really make a day of it. Their vendors include Streat Latin Arepas, Little Tokyo, Los Tacos, Argentinian Grill, and The Duck Shed which you can all enjoy inside the cosy market and away from the cold and as an extra little treat, little ones will be given free goodie bags to take home with them to keep the festive fun going.
There’s no sign-up or booking required as it’s on a first come first served basis making it even more fuss-free. Holly Hilton, marketing director at Market Place, said: “We are excited to be hosting this family-friendly event at Market Place, we would like to celebrate the Christmas festivities with all our local customers and bring them in for a much needed complimentary mulled wine to celebrate the term ending.
“We spoke to a couple of children who regularly visit us at Market Place with their parents and they suggested that they would like face painting and activity sets so what better way to surprise them this Christmas with a free event that includes just that! Market Place is proud to be dog-friendly, family-friendly and inclusive of all those that enjoy good food and company.”
