Lighting up Ealing’s Christmas

Ealing’s town centres will be lit up this Christmas with the help of some of West London’s key developers and businesses.

Festive lights decorating the borough’s town centres of Acton, Ealing, Greenford, Hanwell, Southall and West Ealing will be up by the end of November. They have been funded with the sponsorship help St George, Greystar, Berkeley, Pure Heaven, Greyline, McDonald’s, Heathrow and Live West Ealing. With their support the festive lights have been made possible.

Meanwhile Ealing’s new town square the Elizabeth Square has its own Christmas tree in Ealing Broadway, funded by Dickens Yard developer St George.


Other Ealing events include:

  • Ealing Broadway Shopping Centre, a Christmas market in its central square filled with winter-style chalets selling all kinds of festive fare. It will be open every day until Christmas Eve, Monday to Saturday from 10am-6pm and 11am-5pm on Sundays.


  • A ‘Magical Wardrobe’ themed Santa’s grotto will welcome children free of charge – allowing them to pass through into a winter wonderland of Christmas trees and lights, where they will find Father Christmas and his elves.


  • A local choir will also be on hand at the shopping centre, singing Christmas carols on Thursdays and Saturdays throughout December. New decorations include a five-metre-tall reindeer located in the central square, which shoppers will be invited to name through social media in the coming weeks.


  • ‘Lane Light up the Lane’ event returns to Ealing on Sunday, 1 December to Pitzhanger, with a Christmas market and its usual mixture of community-organised entertainment, shopping opportunities, food, craft stalls, choirs and much more.

Ealing In London wishes a Merry Christmas and prosperous 2020 to all partners, residents, businesses and stakeholders in the borough.
