Celebrate winter with a weekend of revelry and merriment

The Frost Fair is returning for its second year. Join our neighbourhood’s celebrations from 26-28 January on Sumner Street it celebrates one of the most extraordinary events in London’s history. From circa 1605 to 1814, the surface of the River Thames froze over 24 times, bringing all trade on the water to a standstill. So the people of Bankside took to the ice, creating ‘Frost Fairs’, with a sensational cornucopia of markets, amusement, food, drink, games, pubs, shops, entertainment and general revelry!

Inspired by the area’s rich heritage and lively characters, Bankside has reinvented the Frost Fair for the 21st century. Immerse yourself in traditional games, music and dance, artisan stalls, art and craft workshops, and even a life-sized elephant!

Those joining the celebrations on 26-28th Jan 2024 can enjoy 20% off food & drink in Art Yard. Simply quote #FrostFair
