This Thursday, November 29th, the annual Carols and Lights Christmas Parade took place in London Bridge for the 10th year in a row.

The parade organised by Snowfields and Tower Bridge Primary Schools went from City Hall, Potters Field Park, along to Hay’s Galleria to end in London Bridge Station.

On their way to the Galleria and the Station – where they sang carols before the switch on of the Christmas trees – the children were parading holding their hand-made lanterns, behind the two dancers who were opening the path.

The event was in collaboration with the two primary school Snowfields and Tower Bridge, but also London Bridge City, Potters Field, Network Rail, Hamleys Toys, Hotel Chocolat, and Pret.

JLDN met Laurence H. and David H., project managers for Network Rail, who were here to make sure the event was unfolding as expected.

Laurence H. said, “We wanted to bring the [London Bridge] station alive during the Christmas season.

David H. added, “Next year we might do it on stage, it attracted more people than we were expecting!

At the end of the event, the children were happy to meet and take photos with Hamleys’ special guests: Santa, one of his elves and the Christmas bear.
