The launch of The Winter Forest at Broadgate Circle saw the festive season arrive with a bang.
Set against 300 snow-covered Christmas trees and cheering lights, our welcoming first night played host to revellers enjoying Mrs Fogg’s mulled wine and spiced cocktails, treats from our restaurants and bars including mince pies, pizza from Franco Manca and Jose Pizarro croquetas with music from The Brass Funkeys (mixing Christmas tunes with a bit of White Stripes) and DJs.
Attending the evening in aid of Centrepoint – Broadgate’s charity partner for The Winter Forest – were TV presenter Laura Whitmore, cook and writer Gizzi Erskine, model booker Jahale Jureidini, artist Eden Topall-Rabanes, singer-songwriter Professor Green and models Betty Bachz, Toby Huntington-Whiteley and Jack Guinness (scroll below to see all the photos from the evening).
Now open until 24 December, The Winter Forest will be playing host to a dazzling line-up of live music (including Mrs Fogg’s weekly Christmas singalong on Wednesdays), visits from Santa himself, weekend craft classes for kids, Monday quiz nights and some of the best festive food and drink in London courtesy of Broadgate Circle’s acclaimed foodie must-knows. Come along and escape to a winter wonderland…
