Winter at Southbank Centre with Natwest will return from the 20th November and run throughout the festive season

Natwest is partnering with the event for the third year running and will help host an array of family-orientated activities and more.

This year’s highlights include theatre great for groups such as Slava’s Snowshow and La Soriee, and The Choir with No Name, which is a choir comprising of homeless people performing to raise money.

Festive food and drink will be available from the Rekorderlig Cider Lounge, serving seasonal drinks and Scandinavian food in the setting of traditional fire pits and cosy arm chairs.

To help raise money for charity, the festival will host a charity shop emporium, a charity auction, an eight-hour charity dance marathon and an up-cycling fashion workshop which will encourage visitors to reinvent current or old purchases. These particular activities will run on the weekend of the 12th and 13th of December.

The Vintage New Year’s Eve Party will also be back for a fourth year. The exclusive will boast three floors of varied entertainment, from a 1930s torch club to Let It Rock, featuring 1950s rock ‘n’ roll live bands.

Also on site will be a hair and beauty parlour, photo studios, a pinball parlour, fine dining and a private terrace overlooking the River Thames for the perfect view of the fireworks when the clock strikes 12.
