Category: Art & Culture Dates: Friday, 13 December 2013 to Sunday, 15 December 2013 This Christmas, forget about the mad last-minute dash around the shops and opt instead for a more enjoyable experience by visiting the Handmade Christmas festival at the O2. From December 13th until the 15th, the world-famous entertainment venue will be full of independent stalls selling everything from homemade presents and knick-knacks to decadent decorations and tasty treats. The huge number of independent designers, hobbyists, crafters and food and drink connoisseurs in attendance means that this is sure to be one of London's biggest Christmas fairs. Tickets can be purchased in advance for £5 on the website and there will also be workshops available for those interested in creating their own festive items to make the holiday season even more special. Be sure to stay at The Montague on the Gardens Hotel while in London. The stunning Montague Ski Lodge will take your breath away with its model snowmen and reindeer, setting off the Christmas feeling perfectly.
