Hammersmith has played host to it’s first Christmas market, with King Street closed to traffic for the occasion.
More than 16,000 visitors enjoyed the pedestrianised King Street and Lyric Square which was organised by Hammersmith & Fulham Council and lined with over 100 food, drink and gift stalls.
Following the successful revitalisation of North End Road with Fulham’s own traffic-free seasonal markets, the next high street to get the boost of footfall for traders was King Street.
“The Hammersmith Christmas market was a huge success and a great way to start the festive season,” said Cllr Andrew Jones, H&F Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Regeneration. “We are aiming to improve all major high streets in the borough to make H&F the greatest place to live, work and socialise in Europe.”
