The Winter Forest has officially opened at Broadgate Circle. The festive space will be hosting a number of events throughout the winter season.

The temporary structure will offer live music throughout the season from Christmas carols to popular busking acts. Broadgate will also play host to many of London’s independent artists through its partnership with Spinnup, a digital music distribution service for independent artists that allows them to release music and retain all of their rights and royalties. 

The Winter Forest will also offer workshops from luxury florists Grace and Thorn, where visitors will learn to create a festive bouquet.

The Winter Forest is open seven says a week, meaning guests can enjoy Christmas films at the newly launched Everyman Cinema, or even meet Father Christmas himself, who will be visiting on 23 November, and 10 and 19 December.

In addition, this year Broadgate has partnered with Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest, one of London’s leadingmental health charities. A number of Broadgate’s bars, restaurants, and events will be fund-raising for the charity through ticket sales.
