The De Beauvoir Christmas shopping trail returned on Saturday 4th December, with the streets of De Beauvoir Town transformed into a festive Christmas market.

Featuring everything from prints and homewares to Palestinian embroidery, singing bowls and windchimes to Christmas decorations, there was truly something for everyone.

The food on offer was just as wide-ranging, including Taiwanese food from Dumpling Heart for Hackney New Primary School, and homemade goulash and mash from Our Lady and St Joseph School, as well as locally made honeys, jams and preserves.

New for the Christmas trail this year was a market in the crypt at St Peter’s Church offering a wide range of textiles, jewellery, candles, and rugs, amongst other things. Bringing a real festive feel, there was also carol singing throughout the day outside the Church and the Scolt Head.

An impressive £1,000 was raised on the day for De Beauvoir Welcomes Refugees thanks to generous stallholders and customers.
