There's lots of fun to be had at the in Kingston this year.
From the 3rd of December, you will also be able to paint the town red because late night shopping means the stores will stay open until 9pm.
If you're bulk buying, then no doubt you will be taking the car to bring all your shopping home. Well, you're in luck, because from the 1st - 31st December there will be free parking in the Bentalls Centre and John Lewis, leaving you free to while away the hours without worrying about clocking up the pounds on your parking ticket.
Get into the spirit of Christmas with a street party on Old London Road on the 1st December, and while your at it, visit the Christmas Market and the Crafts Fair.
Also there are several art exhibitions being held at Market House. Kingston Artists' Open Studios will be exhibiting until the 8th December, Fusion Arts between the 11th-21st December, and Thames Markets on the 22nd December.
Handmade pottery and ceramics were between £20-£30
The kids can also have fun at Bentalls Shopping Centre, where they can watch the giant teddy bears perform, and meet Father Christmas in Santa's Grotto. He's free to see, but a gift is £3.95.
If meeting Santa is not enough, the can always write him a letter to be in with a chance of winning great prizes. There is a special letterbox in the centre for children to post their letters to Santa. He will answer them all, and the best three will win a prize. The competition is open to 4-12 year olds, and is open until the 7th December.
