Were you as devastated as I was at the news that Winter Wonderland has been cancelled this year? And now we have entered a pre-Christmas lockdown when we should traditionally be enjoying the build up to Christmas with fireworks night, work parties, shopping, seeing family and friends, eating like a pig.

It really does feel like Christmas has been cancelled!

But all is not lost. Together with some fantastic local companies, I have created a Covent Garden Christmas Calendar.

Behind each calendar door every day in December will be a fantastic Covent Garden based company who will be offering all customers a ‘Christmas Gift’. This will vary from a little freebie to a discount on purchases, to help you get ready for Christmas.

So if you like shopping, eating or drinking (yes, yes and yes) then keep your eyes peeled!

The calendar will go live at the end of November where you will be able to open all of the doors to see what offers are available after lockdown.

Businesses have been hit very hard this year, so I’m thankful to them for giving a little back to those who shop with them.

On 25th December one lucky winner will be announced!

They will receive a £100 voucher to spend in a restaurant in Covent Garden. You can take whoever you want (depending on the COVID guidelines at the time!). The voucher will be valid on food and drink, so you can have a great feast! Any spend over £100 is to be covered by you, and if you don’t max out the £100, anything remaining will be left to the restaurant as a tip.

The final restaurant choice will be made once the winner is announced so that I can cater to their dietary needs in my restaurant selection – I don’t want to send a vegan to a steak house! Likewise, if there’s anywhere that you have always wanted to try, let me know.
