Sutton House is hosting Sutton House Christmas, a special seasonal event featuring a Christmas market that will run each weekend from Saturday 26th November to Sunday 18th December at the National Trust property in London.

The Tudor manor house in Homerton High Street, Hackney will host a Christmas fair, open Saturday and Sunday each weekend, themed around pantomimes. The unique concept has been created to tie in with Sutton House’s book-themed events in 2016.

City Showcase: Markets, responsible for Embankment Summer Market, Soho Flea Market and Dalston Christmas Market, are creating a Christmas market inside Sutton House featuring designer stalls and high quality food and drink vendors. Sutton House will also host entertainment on certain evenings including carol performances, film previews, local theatre productions and more.

Offering a vibrant alternative to the more traditional ‘German style’ Christmas market with a handpicked selection of artisans, artists, fashion and jewellery designers, ceramicists, and card makers, Sutton House aims to attract a mix of boutique shoppers and families looking for a fun day out. The magnificent Tudor house provides the perfect setting for the pantomime themed Christmas event combined with the opportunity to find original and quality Christmas gifts.

Sutton House will be transformed into a winter wonderland with each room representing a different pantomime theme; the rooms will be dressed accordingly and include live action characters. Themes include Jack & The Beanstalk, Dick Whittington, Puss In Boots, Hansel and Gretel, Goldilocks, Snow White, Alice In Wonderland, The Beauty and The Beast, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Robin Hood, and Wizard Of Oz. The icing on the Christmas cake will be the opportunity for children to meet Santa.

Sutton House is located in Hackney Central, home to Hackney Fashion Hub, Hackney Empire, St John at Hackney Church, and the iconic Broadway Market. Hackney Central has emerged as a top city location to find budding artists, creatives and craftspeople.
