Christmas at the Old Royal Naval College

Fri 6 Nov 20

Come along to the Old Royal Naval College this Christmas and celebrate the festive season with the whole family. From pop-up festive theatre performances for children in the beautiful riverside grounds, to a local arts and crafts market and carol services, there’s something for everyone.

A crafts and arts market, from 12 – 13 and 18 – 20 December, will have stalls from local makers for all your Christmas shopping needs, as well as amazing food and drink stalls. Browse the market with a glass of mulled wine and get well and truly into the Christmas spirit at Greenwich, while admiring the magnificent Christmas tree in Upper Grand Square and looking at the beautiful Wren architecture illuminated with colourful lights. On 17 and 19 December you will be able to enjoy Late access into the stunning Painted Hall. Tickets will also include a delicious warming winter meal and a free Christmas present.

Have a Christmas sing-a-long and watch two live-streamed carol services from the comfort of your living room on 1 and 4 December, or celebrate the festive season and end of lockdown in person on the 13 and 14 December at beautiful carol services in the Chapel of St Peter and St Paul.

All our events are subject to changes in the government guidance regarding Covid-19. All changes to programming will be updated on our website, so please check back regularly.
