After a difficult year for everyone, the businesses of Streatham would like to wish you all a wonderful Festive Season. After some dark days we hope to make the area feel vibrant and bright as the nights draw in.
Christmas is traditionally a time to come together with those we treasure most. It’s a time for sharing and creating memories. Giving and receiving heartfelt gifts. And this year even though Christmas will look different we still hope as many of you as possible will enjoy shopping and staying local as we encourage our community to come together to celebrate Streatham and support their hard working independent businesses this winter.
For the last few years we delivered the annual Christmas Light Switch-On with Santa’s Grotto and a celebrity guest which regularly attracts over 500 visitors to the area and kick-starts the festive season on Small Business Saturday. Although we may not be able to bring you a Christmas Lights Switch-On show this year that doesn’t mean we won’t make sure Streatham is lit up to bring plenty of much needed festive cheer.
To add sparkle during the darker hours, the Streatham Christmas lights, which are installed, maintained and funded by your local businesses will be up as usual, bringing some brightness to the winter evenings! The three Streatham Christmas trees will be up at their usual location – Streatham Hill station, Babington Road and Streatham Common with additional festoon lighting in the Streatham Green area.
We are still running our fun free family festive trail but this year it’s fully interactive with QR codes to scan and a free e-book as a prize at the end. A great way to get the kids out of the house over the holiday for some super safe, active fun.
And finally each year we bring you the wonderful Christmas magazine collaboration with Heart Streatham; a bumper bundle of tips, treats and shopping delivered straight to your door.
