• Saturday 3 December
This Christmas, shopping hotspots One New Change, Cheapside, Leadenhall Market, Royal Exchange and House of Fraser are teaming up to host a magical shopping event. For the first time at Christmas, historic thoroughfare and shopping street Cheapside will be pedestrianised for a day of retail magic from 10am to 6pm on Saturday 3 December 2011. The road closure will create a unique walking route stretching from St Paul’s to Poultry. The event will be brought to life by a combination of family entertainment and unique offers from many of the shops in the area. Not only is it the first time the street has been closed for a Christmas shopping event, but it is also the first time in over a century that both Leadenhall Market and the Royal Exchange have opened their doors on a Saturday.
• The event will conclude with a carol sing-a-long with the world famous choir of St Paul's Cathedral. Follow the serene sounds of the choir to the 6th floor roof terrace at One New Change, which overlooks the famous cathedral. From 6.30pm.
