Northcote Road Christmas lights switch-on - 26th and 27th November

Postby Jonny Dyson Property Consultants » Thu Nov 18, 2021 10:10 am

Good morning all,

I am delighted to announce that the Northcote Road Christmas lights will be switched on by the Mayor of Wandsworth at 5pm on Friday 26th November in Abyssinia Close.

As usual, there will be various activities on Friday evening, and again on Saturday 27th November, please see below…


Thursday 25th November
A large Christmas tree will be erected on Abyssinia Close, as the focal point for the weeks up to Christmas.

Friday 26th November
From 4pm the choirs from Belleville School, Dolphin School and Bolingbroke Academy will sing Christmas carols along Northcote Road, congregating at Abyssinia Close at around 16.45.

At 5pm the Mayor of Wandsworth will formally switch on the Christmas lights in Abyssinia Close. The carol singers will sing a few more carols after the switch-on, and Northcote Records will have a full band performing Christmas songs thereafter.

For the rest of the evening various shops will be offering mulled wine, Hamptons will host their usual Christmas Grotto, and Rampton Baseley will be feeding Santa’s reindeer.  Glow Dental and Killik will be doing mulled wine, mince pies and balloons for children.

Saturday 27th November
The road will remain open, and there will be no visiting stalls due to COVID, however there will be a number of shops offering discounts and special offers throughout the weekend (see below).

The characters of ‘Paw Patrol’ will be making meet and greet appearances at 10am, 11am, midday, 2pm and 3pm in Abyssinia Close.

At 11am there will be a dog show in the car park behind Northcote Records.
Categories will be as follows: Puppy - any breed (6 - 12 months), Yearling - any breed (12 - 24 months), Best veteran - any breed (7 years and over), Most appealing Eyes, Waggiest tail, Best junior handler, Dog the judges would most like to take home.  To enter please email me at info@northcoteroad.london specifying which category/ies you would like to enter.  Please include full name and address, phone number and name of your dog/s.  Winners will receive a £25 voucher for The Northcote Pet Store.  A huge thank you to Vicky from The London Vet team (176 Northcote Road) for her help in setting this up and also judging on the day.


At 3.30pm there will be a waiter’s race taking place between Mallinson Road and Bennerley Road, where waiters from local hospitality businesses will compete for fastest time, coupled with minimal spillages!!

Shop (and bar) staff will be wearing Christmas jumpers, with prizes for the top three outfits.

A huge thank you to the following:
Lords will have great Special offers on cookware – 50% of a range of pans and 30% off Le Creuset Cookware. These offers are always popular with their customers so we have brought them back for this time.

Baby Mori will be running a kindness pledge promotion for an extra 20% off sale.

Wallace Cotton will be running a store wide discount of 20% off.  Their store will be Christmas decorated and all our Christmas products will have a prominent display in the centre of our store.

Newbie will be offering sweets for all customers, and will also be giving away free reusable canvas bags for all shopping customers during Friday and Saturday!

Huttons will keep the shop open until 7pm on Friday, and on the Saturday 27th, and if anyone wears a Christmas jumper they'll received 10% off their purchase.

Oddonos will offer Hot Chocolate on Saturday when activities are taking place!

Helen's Boutique have a 50% sale on everything, they will offer Port Wine and Portuguese warm natas with cinnamon, and for children they will have a kids tombola of little toys for free.

Morning all,

We've only had a small handful of people registering for the dog show which, given the amount of lockdown puppies around now (including my own!) I find rather strange  😢

If you would like to register please just email me on info@northcoteroad.london and let me know which category you would like to enter...

Good afternoon all,

Sadly I'm afraid that we have had to cancel both the waiter's race and the dog show on Saturday.  Whilst we had a handful of entries, there just weren't enough to make either event viable unfortunately.

The two characters from Paw Patrol will still be making appearances by the Christmas tree on Abyssinia Close (Between Northcote Records and Bellevue Cleaners) at 10am, 11am, Midday, 2pm and 3pm...
