Light Up Winter at Battersea Power Station, Christmas holiday camps and Thursday Theatre Club at Tara Arts

Last Updated on : 13th December 2018

Christmas holiday

Dear NappyValleyNetter, 

Welcome to your weekly What’s On activity guide from NappyValleyNet!

So that’s it. For some of you school’s out, others may have another week. Whichever way you look at it, the Big Day is nigh. This time in two weeks we’ll be eating leftovers and surgically attached to the sofa and the Quality Street. Quite lucky then that Christmas comes but once a year…If you need a hand working out what to do next, check into our calendar from time to time. It’s full of bright and sparkly goings-on (read more).

On the move? We have all the bricks and mortar for sale or to rent in the neighbourhood via PrimeLocation and four agents you’ll know well. Just key in postcode, number of bedrooms and the school you have in mind, and hey presto – you might just unwrap your perfect pad! (read more)

Take a look at these homes from our Preferred Property Partners

For sale with John Thorogood is an unmodernised 4-bedroom house on one of the most sought-after streets off Northcote Road, wider-than-average with great potential to extend into the side return, loft and basement, and a south-facing garden (read more).

For sale with Rampton Baseley is a 5-bedroom family house with two en-suite bathrooms, a great sense of light and space throughout and grand proportions in all of the principal rooms, plus a large landscaped 80ft back garden (read more).

For sale with Portico is a 2-double bedroom split-level flat in a Victorian conversion on a popular street between Brixton and Clapham, with its own front door, a private south-west-facing garden and share of freehold (read more).

Room on the Broom Live on Stage has swooped into the West End for Christmas and is a real treat for any Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler fans. See all those lovely characters and friends come up off the well-thumbed pages and brought to life in front of their wide eyes (read more).

Bach to Baby comes to Balham tomorrow with their Winter Rhapsody offering a magical midwinter moment with a pair of pianists conjuring up Sugar Plum Fairies and a sleigh ride with a twist from Liszt (read more).

It’s the North End Road Festive Market in Fulham on Saturday, when it’ll be closed to traffic from Dawes Road to Lillie Road for all things Christmas to take over. Perfect family festive fun (and shopping!) (read more).
