Frost Fair Final

Bankside Frost Fair

1 December - 31 January

This winter, Bankside has reinvented the Frost Fair for the 21st century. Between 1605 and 1814, the surface of the River Thames froze over 24 times, so the people of Bankside took to the ice, with a selection of markets, food and drink, entertainment, and festivities.

From 1 December - 31 January immerse yourself in augmented reality installations, feast on Frost Fair themed food (including some of our very own festive menu items!) and enjoy inspired workshops from lino printing to wreathmaking!
