Not strictly in SE1 .. think it might fall into SE16 ... but did you know that there's a Scandinavian Christmas market at Rotherhithe this weekend: so time to get all those Sarah Lund jumpers on and head over there for, well, herring, I guess!

Your link says free admission, but the flyer in my mailbox for the the Norwegian church Christmas market, 23rd. - 25th. Nov. at St. Olav's Square SE16 says admission 1.00, free for under 12s.
Perhaps the Finns and Swedes are being kind to strapped Brits!

Thought it was in open street so imagine it would be difficult to charge! Unless some of it is indoors and that can be charged for.

Yes the Norwegian and Finnish churches are running their indoor Christmas fairs as usual - what's new is the free-to-visit open-air market in Albion Street.

it was quite bustling despite the weather, waffles and mulled wine helped keep the chill out ;)
