Wembley Park Christmas Tree





Winterfest - The Big Switch On

Join Wembley Park for Winterfest's Big Switch On.

Head to Wembley Park on Thursday 25th November to celebrate the start of Winterfest with our free evening extravaganza, The Big Switch On. Starting from 4:30pm, the jam-packed palooza will feature the best live bands, choirs, circus acts, Panto performers, fire dancers and lots more - including spectacular lights throughout the evening. Then at 7pm, catch the one and only Strictly Come Dancing superstar Neil Jones on stage as he welcomes in our free winter lights trail by switching on our hugely popular super-tall, walk through Christmas tree. And yes, it is still the largest LED Christmas tree in London.

We can't wait to see you there!

Don't want the party to end? Neither did we! So head to BOXPARK Wembley after the switch on for the official afterparty featuring an appearance from the Ultimate Bublé in his stunning tribute show. Find out more here.

Winterfest 2021

After a one-year hiatus, our free winter festival will once again illuminate the neighbourhood from Thursday 25th November 2021 to Tuesday 4th January 2022. Celebrating togetherness, this year's theme will be 'Reunited in Light', and will feature returning favourites (yes, we mean London's largest LED tree) as well as brand-new commissions and digital artworks, including the world premiere of two new light installations, ‘Reunion’, from Kumquat Lab, and 2021's centrepiece feature, 'Reflections of the Future' by Lucid Creates. Winterfest is set to return bigger and better - and you don't want to miss it.
