Ally Pally Christmas 2024


Summer festivals and fireworks night might be two of the main draws at Ally Pally in any calendar year but there’s also plenty going on during the winter months. This year, Ally Pally again has a Santa’s Grotto where kids can meet (and snap a photo with) Father Christmas himself, set amidst decorations and carollers.

If you’re making the trip, it’s well worth taking a look at the other winter performances and events on offer. The Victorian theatre is host to Mark Gatiss’s acclaimed retelling of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, with Keith Allen leading a fabulous cast; get yourself a ticket for this if you can. The East Court will be decorated with festive illuminations and you can grab a mulled wine or Baileys hot chocolate from the cafe.

The 29th Cazoo World Darts Championships sold out quickly but you can still get yourself some tickets for a Christmas skate session or ice disco – see our article on London’s other festive ice rinks here.

Check the website for times and tickets to the events.

Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
