Royal Exchange Christmas light switch-on with mulled wine!
Our first Xmas light switch on + mulled wine proved so popular we've lined up another one! Join us after work for a festive wine adventure, as we head to the Royal Exchange for the annual Christmas light switch-on. There’ll be caroling, a famous celebrity (Emma Bunton aka Baby Spice) switching the lights on, mince pies and lashings of mulled wine! We’ll also finish up at one of the area's many fantastic wine bars. Highlights: See the big switch-on of the Royal Exchange Xmas display Complimentary mulled wine A glass of wine at a wine bar Get into the festive spirit with other wine lovers Extra mulled wine for whoever's wearing the loudest Xmas jumper!! We’re going to be in the heart of the City, a fantastic place for soaking up some of London’s history. The Royal Exchange was established in 1566 as London’s first purpose-built centre for trading stocks, whilst across the road on Threadneedle Street is the Bank of England. Mansion House, the official residence of the Lord Mayor of London, sits opposite the Royal Exchange. There'll be Xmas lights, mulled wine, live music and festivities galore, as well as great opportunities for Xmas shopping. We'll aim to finish up at the Olde Wine Shades, a wine bar that dates from 1663 (it survived the Great Fire of London!) Fancy joining? Just RSVP and you're all set. Price includes: Mulled wine A glass of wine at a wine bar Guided wander through this historic part of London Paypal fee Please RSVP yes and you will be automatically redirected to PayPal. Payments are non-refundable. If for any reason you have paid and are unable to attend please send Tom a message. Meeting Point: We'll meet outside Bank station, underneath the statue of the Duke of Wellington (he's the guy on horseback). Look for the very tall man wearing a loud Xmas jumper. If you want to join but can't get out of work until later please let us know on[masked] and we'll arrange a way to meet up en route - the more the merrier! What to bring: Warm clothing Money for any food and extra wine you may want to purchase And that's it - hope you can join us! Some more info on the Royal Exchange Xmas light switch-on: The Royal Exchange extends a warm welcome to London workers, residents and visitors for its annual Christmas tree-lighting ceremony on Wednesday 22 November. Gather around the magnificent main entrance from 6pm to celebrate the start of the festive season in style and see the Christmas tree lights switched on by a very special guest – radio presenter and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton. Guests will be treated to hot chocolate, mulled wine, warm mince pies and caroling from the East London Chorus in the lead up to the magic moment when the 25ft tree will be spectacularly illuminated, officially heralding the start of Christmas shopping season.

Anything else I should know?
As we come into autumn we want you to experience as much of the sights, sounds, smells and colours of this beautiful time of year as possible.
The grapes have just been picked, the leaves are changing colour, and here in southern England we have award winning wineries on our doorstep, set in spectacular scenery and crying out to be visited!
We’ll be running lots of wine walks over the next few months, taking in rolling hills, boutique vineyards, delicious wines and local food galore.
Escape the city and come experience it for yourself!
